Looking for Long Ideas in the S&P 500 Futures Market

Back in Monday’s issue, I told you that I was looking ahead to see where the next big opportunities may arise.

That day, I had just published my latest Weekly Idea via TradingView on the S&P 500 (ES) futures market.

You can see the original idea and how the action has played out since then right here!

The Trade Setup

With yesterday’s 3% move to the upside following the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting, the ES broke and closed above its short-term down trend line.

This was a bullish sign.


The action has pushed the ES back into the buy zone, and we’re now looking for a potential push back towards the top of the channel again.

Yes, the ES daily time frame is still in a down channel and showing weakness with the rest of the market today, but it is currently testing the back side of the short-term down trend line.

As long as the market stays above the bottom of the daily channel support, looking for buying ideas will be a good plan.

We’ll do our best to keep you posted as this idea progresses…
