We are at the top of value currently trading @70.87 with expectancy to rotate down to value area low @68.53. I will look for short opportunities to take the market down to VAL. If we struggle to see lower pricing then I will reverse early as we are in an imbalanced market on the Daily to the upside. Caution is to the down side but expectancy is still in place.

Nice auction process happening in the hourly chart. I was able to trade the long up now I am reversing position for the ride back down. This is an aggressive trade I understand because of the strong upward momentum. I will look to cut short and reverse again if the shorts do not pile in for the move down. Stay tuned for the results.
Great Trading Everyone,

If we begin to sell off then first downside target is VAL 67.20, then back into prior value at 66 then VPOC of prior value @ 65.
1 Hour Chart
Below is an image showing you the trades for the day. I did not have to take too many positions today in order to make some cake. This is ideal for me. Buy value area low (VAL) ride it up to VAH...close the position then reverse and go short for the ride back down to VAL. Just a couple of trades and done for the day. Always try to trade around VAL and VAH because price action is very consistent around these areas.
One Hour Chart
Look for engulfing candles on the 30M chart at VAL if you are trading single lots. If you have the ability to scale in then just start buying Value Area Low. Below is a screen shot of yesterday's action. I started buying early the night before and bought all the way down the next morning. In the afternoon it unwound for a nice profit. You can see as well that I am doing it again this morning as I am long and looking for price to go back up in the afternoon.

If you are looking for a way to be profitable in the markets than I recommend swing trading rather than day trading. I have been trading since 2007 and I can tell you from experience that swing trading is much easier to execute than day trading. After teaching for five years now I have found that the reason people do not swing trade more often is because they are looking for quick returns.
