/ESM8 Value: YVAH 2665 YPOC 2633 YVAL 2616

/ES Plan: Yesterday market closed bearish (PBTs 2682-2662) but overnight inventory is temporary balanced, moving within Yesterday's value, so as usual we've these options:

A) If market remains above HVE 2620 with bullish internals, be a buyer leaning on 2620-2624 towards GAP 2635 ONH 2639.75 and YVAH 2665. 'Look below and fail' is a signal of strength.

B) If market starts to move below HVE 2620 with bearish internals, become a seller leaning on 2620 towards ONL 2618.25 LVN 2600 and HVE 2586. 'Look above and fail' is a signal of weakness.

Tips: Trade entries and exits always depend on each trader account size, financial situation, risk tolerance and time frame style (swing or scalp). You can combine both (Scalp/Swing) in a scale-out trade strategy, where one set of contracts is scalped and a second set is left open for a possible winning runner towards key levels. If the trade moves to the first profit-target, then final stop is moved to the entry price.
