Bull Flag Compression

By -

ES has been compressing for a couple of days now, forming a likely bull flag for the next leg higher. That may have made a low overnight or may have a bit lower to go before the next leg up begins. A break and conversion to support of the current short term high at 2863.75 ES should clear the path to the all time high retest. Partial Premarket Video from theartofchart.net – Update on ES, NQ:

On SPX main channel resistance is now in the 2888 area and may be the target for the next leg up, after which we expect to see a decent retracement with an obvious target at a test of main channel support, currently in the 2765 area but obviously rising.

After that we might see a test of longer term trendline resistance on SPX in the 2950-3000 area to make a more serious high. SPX 60min chart:
