After FOMC

Outlook 03/22: Wednesday was highlighted by the Federal Reserve's FOMC statement and press conference. Among other things, the Fed Chair Jerome Powell said that an escalation of trade tensions around the U.S.'s tariff policy could cause the economy to slow down and force the Fed to reassess its economic outlook. Today, we already have reports that President Donald Trump will announce $50 billion in new tariffs against China. U.S. stock market futures are already selling off.

/ES Plan: Yesterday market closed bearish and overnight shows a bimodal profile (LIS 2695) moving below Yesterday's range, so today's options are:

A) If market remains below LIS 2695 with bearish internals, become a seller leaning on 2695-94 towards PBT 2678 GBT 2673 and LVN 2660. 'Look above and fail' is a signal of weakness.

B) If market starts to move above LIS 2695 with bullish internals, try to be a buyer leaning on 2695 towards LVN 2703 and YVAL 2715. 'Look below and fail' is a signal of strength.
