Trading was MUCH lighter today than normal…mini SP volume is normally above 1,000,000 contracts per day. Today volume was approx. 300000.
I suspect the lower volume to continue until next Tuesday when we start trading for 2018.
Don’t confuse low volume with “dead price action”. The lower volume can sometimes help exaggerate price moves when certain news or events take place.
The market of today, was definitely crude oil (yes not bitcoin futures this time…). The front month, February touched 60.01 for the first time in
months, maybe couple of years…
Daily chart for review below:
