RIGHT CLICK TO OPEN IMAGE IN NEW TAB E-mini S&P 500 futures, Jun 2024 (TradeStation: ESM24) / Fri Apr 26, 2024 / 8:54 AM Eastern Time / 60 MINUTE CHART


On Thu Apr 25 at 8:54 AM ET (gray vertical line), I wrote:


During the overnight, futures weakened below the 5076.75 initial target (Mon Apr 22 old high). 

The outlook is for futures to continue to weaken. The next downside target is 5010.75 .

Recovery gains may delay, but only back above 5082.50 would offer relief toward 5100.50 initially. 



Futures did continue lower early in Thu’s regular session. They fell to 5022.25, with the 60 min RSI pushing into the Bear Support Power Zone. 

From there, futures quickly stabilized and reversed sharply higher. They exceeded 5082.50 toward the end of the regular session. 


During the overnight, futures continued to surge higher, piercing Wed’s 5128.75 high. They’ve been consolidating since, spiking up briefly following today’s release of PCE inflation data.

Futures are at an inflection point:

  • If they trade lower beneath 5105.88, I’d watch out for further weakness toward 5077.50 which shields 5046.00.
  • If futures are able to regroup and trade higher above 5148.50 – 5150.00, that would put focus for s-term bulls back on 5187.50 next.

~ Background to this report ~

I used to write and share E-mini S&P 500 futures analysis on a pretty regular basis. I sunsetted that formal service called the Skinny on the Markets about two months ago, sharing the last report on Valentine's Day Feb 14th.

Some of you have expressed that you've missed receiving that research – pretty deeply.

Therefore I've been experimenting (like a mad scientist) with bringing back that research in a NEW service.

The experiment is coming to an end, so if you'd like to be the FIRST to know about this new service – doors will be opening soon – be sure to comment below!

    Thanks for this report. I like the detailed analysis as it helps me “see” what and understand what the ES is doing, but how a seasoned trader sees and interprets the chart. Thanks again, appreciate it.
