If At First They Don’t Succeed 8/18/20

Bulls are a stubborn lot.

What does this hourly chart of the ES futures tell us?

Well clearly, we’re playing for all the marbles here. This is a huge consolidation pattern on the hourly bars. It looks as though a breakout would trigger a huge move.

But watch out. If they get through 3388 there’s resistance at 3393. A reversal there that returns the price below 3388 could be a huge break for the bears.

But if they go through that? Ah! That’s the key. Then we’re looking at about 3406 by the end of today.

I’ve been publishing The Wall Street Examiner and its predecessor since October 2000. I also publish LiquidityTrader.com, and was lead analyst for Sure Money Investor, of blessed memory. I developed David Stockman's Contra Corner for Mr. Stockman. I’ve had a wide variety of finance related jobs since 1972, including a stint on Wall Street in both sales, analytical, and trading capacities. Prior to starting the Wall Street Examiner I was a commercial real estate appraiser in Florida for 15 years. I was considered an expert in the analysis of failed properties that ended up in the hands of bank REO divisions, the FDIC, and the RTC. Remember those guys? I also worked in the residential mortgage and real estate businesses in parts of the 1970s and 80s. I have been charting stocks and markets and doing analytical work since I was a teenager. I'm not some Ivory Tower academic, Wall Street guy. My perspective comes from having my boots on the ground and in the trenches, as a real estate broker, mortgage broker, trader, account rep, and analyst. I've watched most of the games these Wall Street wiseguys play from right up close. I know the drill from my 55 years of paying attention. And I'm happy to share that experience with you, right here.
