Looking at the intraday of the ES, it looks like we’ve got a nice topping pattern in place, but I admit, a lot of the downside seems to have been spent already. Indeed, the measured move takes us to about 1992, which isn’t that terribly far from here, and we could still bounce back to the neckline without violating the pattern.
