The bulls had high expectations this morning for some good news from ECB rate announcement (7:45am EST), Jobless Claims (*:30am EST), or Draghi’s press conference (8:30am EST). They camped out a few ticks below the multi-year highs, waiting for the opportunity break out of the 6 day consolidation. But alas… the ECB didn’t change their rate and the claims went up 10K over expectations. Draghi did provide a little spark with a comment about the ECB was not thinking about exiting. The bulls tried to use the comment to send price into an up trend but could only take out a few stops above the previous highs. Soon after the cash market opened, price could not retake the multi-year highs. Unfortunately, there were not enough sellers to create an order flow entry. However the next attempt up did show the institutions selling and created today’s example trade opportunity.
