Game Plan 11-7-12 Chart 1
The future cheered to Obama’s victory but the day ahead could be highly volatile. The 30/35 range worked as a short term resistance in previous sessions. Due to our short bias, we were able to fade any attempt to break through, profiting using our money management rules adapting to different volatility regime.
Today we need to study the market’s reaction near the 2550 mark because a breakout could send the future to test the 2575 level, which we have used as a “signal” line. Whereas if the 50 mark is able to hold the buying pressure, the future could retest the old resistance, now support at 2530.
