Markets Sell Off to Begin the Week – Fear of Possible Trade Wars Finally Sink In

Often large gaps that begin a new week develop into a new short term trading range. Large gaps are also rarely filled the day after they are created.

The late rally high at 2725.00 could be an early Market Profile trading reference on the next trading day. Continued acceptance below that level keeps the current downtrend in tact. Acceptance above the late rally high targets the excess single prints above 2732.00, and potentially test the prior monthly high at 2745.25. The session low, at just two ticks above the psychological 2700 level, is also very questionable.

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.
