ES #F Demand, strong close, overnight weakness?

The daily chart above shows our SUPPLY and DEMAND Dashboard and BXB (Bar by Bar) Signals using data from the NYSE.

The readings are an independent assessment of the one and only measureable fundamental market mover: SUPPLY and DEMAND. It does not matter if price is influenced by a geopolitical event, seasonality, fundamental economic data releases or sentiment driven news, etc. It all reflects in Supply and Demand, the “footprints” of the “Big Boys” or “Smart Money”.

Yesterday’s trading followed the same pattern as on Friday (initial weakness with a strong close), but overnight weakness brought price down to a low of 2752.75. At the time of this writing the ES was trading at 2755.00.

Yesterday the ES lost 6.25-points to close at 2778.25 after an initial drop to a low of 2761.25. With the decent amount of Demand, we did not expect a down day and this is an anomaly. The tit-for-tat tariffs between the USA and China is clearly weighing in on the markets as fears that an escalating trade dispute could be detrimental for global markets.

Supply is still dominating on a 3-day basis, so caution would be in order.

Support to the down side will come in at 2756.00 and 2741.75. A bar close below 2756.00 will spark more weakness. Price needs to close above 2786.75 for the near term weakness to subside.

The Dashboards on the chart above show the Supply and Demand data for the total NYSE market. If we assess the daily chart with only data for the ES continuous contract shown below, we notice that Supply was dominating Yesterday (although the reading was not strong). At the time of this writing strong Supply emerged in overnight trading.
