ES Daily Plan | February 23, 2023
As the pattern of lower highs and lower lows persists, sellers remain in control.
The main objective for buyers is to end the daily one time framing down, which could potentially lead to short-covering.
The regular, detailed plans were supposed to resume today, but unfortunately, I'm still away from my desk. I expect to return within the next few days.
The pattern of lower highs and lower lows persists, and the main objective for buyers is to end the daily one time framing down, which could potentially lead to some short-covering targeting fills of the upper distribution from 2/21. Sellers main target is primarily the Weekly Extreme Low 3970. The 5-day VPOC has shifted to 4005 from 4125, suggesting acceptance of lower prices. The MA50 generated a lot of noise today.
Going into tomorrow's session, I will observe 4005.
Holding above 4005 would target 4015 / 4030 / 4050
Break and hold below 4005 would target 3987 / 3970 / 3956
Additionally, pay attention to the following VIX levels: 23.56 and 21.02. These levels can provide confirmation of strength or weakness.
Break and hold above 4050 with VIX below 21.02 would confirm strength.
Break and hold below 3956 with VIX above 23.56 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.
