Another one I watch. When breadth rolls over it's hard to get anything started to the upside.

#ES_FChina news back in focus.

#ES_FChina news back in focus. No deal ... liq break. Let's see if traders press lower to 3070 and then the unfilled gap from Nov 1 3044.5-3050. This 100+ past-month's "weak foundation" melt-up being retraced in 2 sessions.

Ralph Acampora CMT@Ralph_Acampora  "Much of the market's recent strength has been in anticipation of a resolution  (even partially) between China and the U.S.A. on tariffs. But this morning's comments from President Trump imply that this resolution is not about to take place anytime soon." Actually that was only part of what he said...but never mind.

It smells like...victory!

Another one I like for an early tell.

I know I am the only one who looks at ES this way, but to second Matt's point, that all-time high was made in the O.N. session and lasting highs are very rarely if ever made in the  O.N. session. It will be revisited soon.

I like the to buy options (I trade spreads) at the midpoint exactly just to keep things simple, easy and quickly filled.

See my message to you - sorry for the delay.

"I have some AAPL shares and want to keep a core holding; 1) where should I put my trailing stop, and  2)what percentage of AAPL that I have should be that core holding. I bought  AAPL @ 210.99 Thoughts from anyone are welcome.  Thank you." Winter 39

Winter 39: Since it's a slow day here are a few answers on portfolio management from a few books I have re-read lately.: Nicholas Darva "How I made 2 million in 18 months..." invested everything in 2 stocks and then putting everything into just one, that he was absolutely sure of, raising his stop along the way. Jessee Livermore" Reminiscences of a stock operator" did the same, plunging big, never using stops, or using charts..and going all-in in one or two positions,  making and losing several fortunes along the way. (eventually shooting himself). I myself, after losing 15% of my portfolio trading ES with no stops, now never risk more than 3% of it in any one position or 5% in any one industry and only use options to know my risk ahead of time. Portfolio management rules are many and varied. Which ones fit you is your choice. (I'm sure many others here can offer other ideas- hope that helps.

Here's a variation on your ribbon charts that I use, Matt. The white between the long and short MAs is the signal.
