/ESM8 Value: YVAH 2695 YPOC 2687 YVAL 2684

/ES Plan: Yesterday market closed bimodal (LIS 2690) but overnight inventory is bullish (GBT 2701), moving within Yesterday's range, so as usual we've these options:

A) If market remains above LIS 2690 with bullish internals, be a buyer leaning on 2690 towards ONH 2698.25 and LVN 2703. 'Look below and fail' is a signal of strength.

B) If market starts to move below LIS 2690 with bearish internals, become a seller leaning on 2690 towards ONL 2682.75 and PBT 2674. 'Look above and fail' is a signal of weakness.

Tips: Focus on execution during high volume hours (9:30-11:30am/3:00-4:00pm ET). Avoid Lunch Time pitfalls.
