With FOMC minutes report today, nothing expected but chop until 2 PM EST. As a rule of thumb, I will sit out of the FOMC minutes until the market has settled and drives price action to the close in a trend.

Internals will drive the force after FOMC minutes have been ingested and following trend will enter based on the direction.

After the FOMC minutes report, huge buying and selling until market direction found a trend to the downside on decreasing internals. Several entry points on this under the 25m Open Range, EMA crossover entry. Last entry would have been under CAM L4. – Review in video.

EMA Charts

EMA Charts

Price action chopped a bit within the last 45 minutes until 15m to the close and post market action on EMA crossover with significant selling and drop in Russell Internals. Lining up both the 5/34 EMA charts and 5/13/21/80 charts there are only several opportunities where both were in sync and price action was in trend.
