once this down stroke is complete, i'm going to speculate that we grind up-sideways during the lunch doldrums. the action is going to be this afternoon, potentially a "big" move this pm/tomorrow. looking at the internals, i'm 60-40 bearish. Big Grin

here's the lift i've been waiting for. we're going to retest s1 soon (i think we break to the upside) and gap fill. thinking big move this afternoon - tomorrow and keep your eyes on internals for direction. Smilie

/es 1200 was entry. now i'd like to see a close under 1195. shooting for 25% or better gain again. Big Grin

limit didn't fill so i'm still in. we're fighting over the pivot and i'll give it to /es 1205 for a stop loss.

wanna be under 1200, at the very least. under 1195 would be great. Smilie

my theory was tested and i made the wrong call today. kept my losses small and bailed when i saw the market was moving against me. Big Grin
