ES Daily Plan | February 16, 2023
The market remains in a state of consolidation after today's inside day, coiling for a move. PPI data tomorrow premarket.
NOTE: I'm away from the desk for the next few days, so the daily plans will be provided in a condensed, commentary-free format. Regular, detailed plans will resume on Wednesday, February 22nd.
Today’s session ended with an upward spike. Trading within and above the spike (Acceptance) is a more favorable outcome for buyers, as that confirms the higher prices of the spike. Trading below the spike (Rejection) is a more favorable outcome for sellers as that negates the higher prices of the spike.
Going into tomorrow's session, I will observe 4154.
Holding above 4154 would target 4175 / 4192 / 4208
Break and hold below 4154 would target 4135 / 4125 / 4109
Additionally, pay attention to the following VIX levels: 19.16 and 17.30. These levels can provide confirmation of strength or weakness.
Break and hold above 4208 with VIX below 17.30 would confirm strength.
Break and hold below 4109 with VIX above 19.16 would confirm weakness.
Overall, it's important to exercise caution when trading outside of the highlighted yellow levels. A non-cooperative VIX may suggest possible reversals i.e trade setups.
