Trading plan for March 9, 2015

160308-ES-daily

ESH6 March 8, 2016. Daily chart.

ES had a gap down at the open and the price remained below the 1993.75 level for the day. The ES lost 18 points yesterday

The short-term overbought condition led the ES make a short-term pullback move: no surprise there. We could continue down to the 1950 level before this minor pullback is completed.

Yesterday’s unfilled gap will be a key. As long as this gap is open, the odds will favor a downside move until the ES proves it can hold up the 1950 level.

The 200-day moving average line will remain as a major resistance area, and 1950 level area will remain as a major support.

It is possible that 1975 will be where the SPX chops around for the “Wednesday Weekly” option expiration.

1968.75, which was a breakout level on March 1, also overlaps the 10-day moving average line and will likely will act as the first intraday support. 1995.50-93.75 should be the first intraday resistance.

A break above 1995.50 could push the ES to fill the 1999 gap. And a move below 1966.50 could lead ES down to the 1960.50-55 zone for testing.

Outlook

Short-term === Bullish with overbought condition
