Tuesday stock market forecast

The Hoot 
Actionable ideas for the busy trader delivered daily right up front
  • Tuesday depends on ES pivot
  • ES pivot 2101.50.  No guidance..
  • Rest of  week bias uncertain technically.
  • Monthly outlook: bias higher.
  • YM futures trader: no trade.

The technicals

Market index futures: Tonight, all three futures are higher at 12:32 AM EST with ES up 0.19%. 

ES daily pivot: Tonight the ES daily pivot rises  from 2095.00 to 2101.50.  That leaves ES sitting exactly on top of its new pivot so this is one of those rare nights where we have no pivot guidance.

     And the winner is...

With nothing but old charts to work from, traders still straggling in from their long weekend, and a short week ahead it's a difficult night to call.  But with ES sitting right on top of its new pivot, it's a good time once again to make another conditional call just like last Thursday night.  If ES breaks above its pivot and remains there by mid-morning Tuesday, we'll close higher.  But if it breaks to the downside and stays there, we close lower.

No trade tonight.


  1. Still making up your stats I see...lol

      I'm not quite sure what your problem is, but would you mind going and trolling someone else's blog for a change. 'K?
