Inside Day, 40+ Point Rally and Selloff



Price traded mainly within the upped distribution from Friday’s profile, dipping into the lower distribution in the final period when price sold off over 40 points from the high.

Price one timframed higher from the open through six 30 minute periods, developing a six TPO wide point of control at 2643.00, then abruptly reversed and one timeframed lower into the close.

Monday was an inside day. Price acceptance below 2610 probably targets Friday’s low at 2584.50, and potentially the daily lows from 4/3 and 4/4 at 2573.50 and 2571.25, respectively.

Since Monday ended as an inside. balanced day, potential balance trading scenarios could include price either looking above or below the high/low of the balance and either accelerate or fail, or remain in balance. Monday’s range was 43.75 points. Profiles with many anomalies often have good odds of being at least partially repaired in a future session, if not the next.

Price acceptance above Monday’s high, which is a poor high, targets Friday’s high a 2656.75 and possibly the wide point of control at 2661.25 from the 4/4 profile. The high from that day’s profile at 2672.25 is also a poor high with no TPO’s of excess. Poor highs could signify shorter timeframe traders were in control, leaving good odds of those levels to be revisited, or repaired, at some point in the future.

One Timeframing Trend Day Higher, Late Spike

The market stopped one timeframing higher for only one period, typical for a trend day.

outside day, one time framing
Price had one time-framed higher in all but one 30 minute period, typical for a trend day. Also an outside day.

A potential important early market profile trading reference for Thursday could be the base of the late day J period spike at 2619.75. Opening within the spike implies the late higher prices are being accepted, opening above the spike means the late probe did not trade high enough to cut off the buying. Opening below the base of the spike is negative, in that case the pullback low at 2601.50 could be a potential target.

The April 1st selloff was a failed breakout of the March inside month. Although Wednesday was an outside day to the upside, the market is currently trading in a multi-day range.

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.
