Double Distribution, Poor High

Double Distribution Profile
Double Distribution Profile

Each distribution in a daily market profile chart could be looked as a separate day, or balance area. Price can look above or below balance and either continue to find acceptance at higher or lower prices, look above/below a balance and fail (returning back into the balance and possibly target the opposite end), or remain in balance.

With lower summertime trading volume the better odds on Tuesday could probably see price remain balanced within the current two day range or with a slight extension to either side, barring any surprising external news events.

Price acceptance below the lower distribution could target at least some of the remaining poor structure from the 8/2 profile chart. Acceptance back above the poor high could target the unfilled gap from 8/9.

Short Covering, Double Distribution

The market profile chart formed a second, higher distribution above the earlier 5th (E) period high, after an upward spike in J period, rallying to just two ticks shy of the upper distribution low from Wednesday’s profile.

Focus for Friday could be on acceptance or rejection of the upper distribution from Thursday. Price acceptance back into the lower distribution could target the session low at 2693.50, which was also very mechanical at just a single tick above the overnight low.

If price opens within the upper distribution, potential balance scenarios could include:

– Look above the upper distribution high at 2726.25 and find acceptance back into the upper distribution from Wednesday, potentially targeting the excess single prints or the opposite end of that balance. The unfilled gap remains at 2755.25 from June 22nd.

– Probe above the upper distribution high and fail, returning back into the balance with the potential to trade lower to the opposite side and test Wednesday’s lower distribution.

– Look below the upper distribution low at 2715.75, testing the single print at 2714.00, and find acceptance back into Thursday’s lower distribution with good odds of targeting the point of control, and potentially the weak low.

– Look below the upper distribution low and fail to find acceptance back below 2714.00, returning back into the upper balance and potentially targeting Thursday’s high, and the upper distribution from Wednesday.

– Remain in balance.

Whenever price re-enters a previous balance the same rules could apply – look either above or below the balance and accelerate or fail, or remain in balance. So the same trading scenarios exist if price opens within the lower distribution after the overnight trading session.

The overnight high and low are always valid trading references.
