Last week we saw an inside bar pattern form on the ES. There was a false break out of this inside pattern. Price pulled back in and continued to consolidate. Going into the Monday morning trading session it looks like we will have a gap up and may finally see that upside breakout to start the next leg up.
Price continues to consolidate on the daily chart so I take a look at any price action in the hourly charts. I see a potentially bullish hammer setup on the hourly chart off of a key price level. If the candle closes as a hammer and breaks above we may see that next strong bullish move up.
