Skinny on the Mini for Mon Apr 15, 2024

RIGHT CLICK IMAGE TO ENLARGE IN NEW TAB E-mini S&P 500 futures, Jun 2024 (TradeStation: ESM24) / Mon Apr 15, 2024 / 8:26 AM Eastern Time / 60 MINUTE CHART


On the weekly timeframe, I think we’ve completed a 2nd drive higher since the Oct 2023 low. 

The daily time frame shows the pullback off the 5333.50 contract high having probed below 5167.75 (Mar 15 low).

However the 60-min time frame shows the potential completion of 4 drives down from 5333.50.  Also, the latest recovery off Friday’s 5150.00 low is in line with a Relative Zone (see Advanced RSI Power Zones System).

Therefore, the outlook is for futures to trade higher toward 5233.50 per the Advanced Forecast Cloud.

Dips may delay, but below 5185.75 would be needed to delay toward 5171.25.

~ Background to this report ~

As many of our veteran Tribe members know, 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 exactly 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, after thinking on it this weekend, I'm willing to conduct an experiment to perhaps (not promising) create something NEW that would provide that type of analytical help. The old way was not easy or sustainable for me, so it's def not coming back in that exact form/delivery.

So my experiment begins with this little Tax Day edition of that style of report, especially because this weekend some serious stuff went down in the Israel/Gaza conflict.

NOTE this is NOT a revival of the Skinny on the Markets. This is an experiment for me to find a way to help traders who will value this the most in a way that I can sustain it.

    It is interesting and bit surprize to find this report. It always helps to see the direction of market and the stations this trend will stop, upward or downward. Generally most of do not look backward for resistance and support.

    I value all your insights and am learning a lot (slowly) from your courses
    The irony is when I first signed up for the “Skinny” I had no realization of how valuable it was
    In my defense, I was a little preoccupied (Registered Nurse in a Pandemic)
    I would greatly appreciate any analysis you can share
    I do feel the market is wishing that the Middle East scenario will not escalate vs knowing that increased volatility seems very likely ie. higher oil adding onto our already high inflation and decreasing the likelihood of an interest rate cut any time soon

    Hi Hima. Yes I along with others really miss the ES skinny, but as they say nothing lasts forever, sometimes these things are to stop us being so complacent, in makes me go back to some of my other knowledge.

    All the best and kind regards Mark

    Hello Hima, I find any insights which you provide very useful, especially where market direction may be heading. I would say however as much as I enjoy your pearls of wisdom you must have time for yourself and not over stretch to the point where you put too much difficulty on yourself.

    Kind regards

    Hello Hima,
    I like this “experiment” you h've done: there are elements of your tool's set up we could use for ourselves that are helping us try to find some clue in the SWING approach.
    This is wat I believe could be a good instrument for me to refine my own analysis.
    Please keep up and I wish you could publish similar updates sometime in the next weeks.

    I would be very interested in a post of your brief analysis of the markets for the upcoming week. A short highlight of any major issue(s) you see for trading that week I think would be very helpful.
