/ESM8 Value: YVAH 2729 YPOC 2728 YVAL 2722

/ES Plan: On Friday market closed bullish (PBT 2737) and overnight filled that PBT. Right now ON profile is still bullish (GBT 2744), moving above Friday's value, so as usual, we've these options:

A) If market remains above YVAH 2729 with bullish internals, be a buyer leaning on 2729-2733 towards ONH 2741 GBT 2744 and PBT 2747. 'Look below and fail' is a signal of strength.

B) If market starts to move below YVAH 2729 with bearish internals, become a seller leaning on 2729 towards ONL 2727.25 and YVAL 2722. 'Look above and fail' is a signal of weakness.

Tips: We should always be patient and humble in the face of the market. The biggest lesson we should learned is to be humble. When we’re winning, we think we’re genius, not so much when losing, so you have to recognize that the market does what the market wants to do not what we want it to do. There is no place for ego in the markets.
