I'm long on the Dow cash 15160 with a stop of 15110 limit 15226.
The move is based on the 50% retrace from the Low 14726 to 15226. This doesn't quite take it back to Fridays close of 15237.
The Dax and FTSE are indicating support for the Dow at current levels and its only likely that we will see positive news on the debt ceiling as all the bad news is easily factored in.
The stop is below support at 15126 which was first put in as resistance on 31st May and tested today.

Short ES here at 1705.5
stop at 1712.5
Price/momentum starting to diverge. Hitting a fib.
Quite a run-up from this morning.
Am hoping that all the traders who shorted the gap fill level earlier
are getting stopped out about now, ripe for a reversal down without them same traders
on board for the move. We've all been there before! Worth a shot. Innit to win it....

Long DAX at 8760 and short DOW at 15,305
Ratio 1.74 = DAX 1.74 and DOW 1

Current variance -38 for the week.

Looking for variance back to or close to Zero, stop will be first 1 to 2 hours in Euro session if not playing ball.
German ZEW will decide the outcome of the trade.

And Closing it here at 1696.25 for +9 ES points

It's approaching demand lines. Momentum still up, so as good a place as any to take profits.
