Looking For A Retracement Low

Since I was writing on Friday the bull flag megaphone has broken up, a rising wedge formed on ES into yesterday’s high, and then that wedge broke down with the obvious target at a retest of the retracement low.

…..the ideal target on SPX has not yet been hit, though SPX has come close twice. There is a risk that is unfinished business below, and that the next leg up on SPX will not start in earnest until that target is hit. That leaves a question mark over any impulse directly up from here. If ES can convert 2884 to support today however, then we would likely not make that low today at least.
