Here is the look of the hourly chart of the E-mini June S&P after 3 hours of trading, which indicates to me that the decline from 1234.25 to 1205.50 is complete- and already is engaged in a rest-digestion period. My work also argues that the downleg exhibits bearish form, which warns me to expect another potent decline once the current rest period runs its course. The tricky part for us is to anticipate (or react quickly) to signs that the rest period is over... Hey, no problem, right? We will do our best to be there. The only alternative is to get short, and to risk 15 or 20 S&P points to avoid having to time the next rollover.-- and right now, that is not the preferred methodology.
