Cash gets a chance at the highs since the futures sold before the open. This is not a repeat of yesterday, imo.

Looks like we have been building a base before we head higher again....     Looking for some negative divergences on multiple charts, and don't see they have materialized to warrant anything but a mild sell-off...

Bullish volume is building on the hourly, not guaranteed but high % accuracy.

Looking for 2900 on a breakout, not all in one day.

New hourly close buy issued. The problem, I don't like when they start on the open on a gap up, start, I mean hourly started at 9:30 and 

closed and printed at 10:30. Usually new buys on the open fail, but not follow on buys. So, I have tight stops on my ITM positions and will close them at the end of the day if not stopped, no matter what.

I think I may have found something, it seems that gap ups to new highs, get reversed the same day, but the gap we had Friday was not a new high on the open so it just kept going. I am using the hourly chart for this study. The exceptions it fails, price just goes sideways.

 

This was why my hourly system buy, did not fail as I thought it might.

 

In determining new highs, I mean within the last 2-3 weeks.

 

I don't like picking tops out of nowhere but with these type of gaps, it is a good spot to close longs and or short the open. I will be looking for this next time.

New hourly sell on close. Will let my hedges run and not add to longs until more selling and time.
