Figure # 6.29 - The December E-mini S&P had peaked at 1347.75 on the projected 12:00 p.m. reversal bar. The futures market had closed higher than the opening price and near the high of the 10-minute bar. The trail bar pushed above the high of the reversal bar and closed below the opening price. The reversal bar had indicated an end of the cycle and the trail bar confirmed the directional change. The high of the trail bar proved to be the high of the daily price range and the S&P moved into a sideways-to-lower trading pattern until the close of the day.
