Market Structure and Trade Setups, 9-25


Here's my forecast for today's price range:

After a HUGE (it wasn't, really) selloff in equities, we're at some previous resistance as well as the 61.8% retracement. I'm expecting that to hold as a level of support going into friday, as traders look to close out positions for the week. Premarket futures currently have price at 1048 so that's the upper end of the range. I would not be a buyer at those levels.

It is best to trade without an opinion so if the tape suddenly breaks 1040 or 1070, I'll be impressed and adjust my strategy as such. But odds are against it, for now.

Setups to come, after my coffee.

So, instead, I will present the first part of my Dip List:
