All eyes were on the 8:30am EST employment numbers. Non-farm payroll handily beat expectations and unemployment numbers also beat expectations. It appeared to be a very bullish set of news and the ES initially reacted in a bullish manner. However, the ES was not able to overtake the news spike high coming into the open. I was thinking I still wanted to be long but would need to wait for a pullback into support. Initially it looked like the previous overnight high and R1 pivot area should provide the support needed for a move back up, but the market proved me wrong as it pushed through the area without providing an entry opportunity. As price worked it’s way through the 42.75 level, I kept waiting for an opportunity to unfold. Finally price double bottomed offering a long opportunity.
