ES #F In Greed zone, Volatility at extreme low?

The daily chart of the S&P 500 mini futures contract above shows our proprietary SUPPLY and DEMAND Dashboard and BXB (Bar by Bar) Signals using data from the NYSE.

The market closed higher Yesterday, but no new swing high. SD Volatility reached an extreme low (lowest since July the 1st). Mixed signals on the Dashboards. Interesting to see Volume declining in the last upswing.

The mixed signals are typical before a substantial move up or down. If the 2944.75 level holds, we could see another attempt to test the recent swing low at 2817.75. If this swing low is taken out expect more down side movement. A close above 2969.25 should be a Bullish sign for the near term.

Our key pivot for today is 2925.50.

End of the day Signals August the 19th:

S & D Dashboard Algorithm is Bullish

Daily Signals are Bearish

These 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”.


Conflicting signals. Demand and Buying pressure is weakening, whilst in the “Greed” zone. Average Volatility at an extreme low. Daily Volatility was Bearish Yesterday.
