Breakout Above Short Term Trading Range

breakout of trading range
Breakout above the prior trading range high at 2748.00

The market broke out above the recent 50+ handle trading range. The breakout was on low volume compared to the size of the move higher (NYSE volume was just below 3 billion shares traded). The late pullback low at 2756.75 and the prior trading range high at 2748.00 could be important early trading references to begin the new week.

Split view market profile chart shows the late pullback low at 2656.75. Continued acceptance above that level could keep the bullsh rally in tact, while price acceptance below that level probably targets the prior trading range high at 2748.00.

Inside Month Breakout?

breakout from March inside month
Breakout below March low, an inside month

March ended as an inside month. Monday’s selloff was on relatively light NYSE market volume of 3.43 billion shares

Price mechanically traded 6 points higher at the open to just above the prior close before selling off, one timeframing lower for the first six half hour periods, breaking out below the March low at 2586.00 in the fifth period.

The market rallied off the 2552.00 session low to 2585.00 in ‘M’ period, but could not trade back into the March range. Continued acceptance below that level (and the March low at 2686.00) could target the February low at 1535.25. Monday’s point of control at 2574.25 could draw price back to it on Tuesday, and could act as either early support or resistance.

Aceptance back above the 2586.00 level could target at least some of the multiple anomalies from Monday’s stretched out profile and numerous single prints.
