I’ve got one of those “personal tale” anecdotes in the hopper that people seem especially fond of reading, but I think I’ll leave it for another day. For now, I’ll just wrap up my day with the chart of the ES, which as I’m typing this is up an immaterial half a point. If the trading gods are reading this, it would make things a lot easier on us chartists if prices stayed beneath the tinted pattern. If they do, the clean target appears to be 1772. Inflation data roles out tomorrow an hour before the opening bell, so that should get things moving (hopefully: down). G’nite!
