S&P Daily Pre-Market Prep 7/20/17

An interesting day yesterday - we've had a decent push up, on low volume but still better volume than the prior days. It was also a fairly small range day. So it's still a bit of a coin toss. I'd like to see a pullback but will have to follow any moves up if they occur as that's the direction of the market. I see it as weak upside but I can't fight it.

First place I'll be looking for a pullback is the high of the prior few days around 61.25 and below that the old high at 43.25.

From a profile perspective, we also have a distribution below us with a top around 60.00. So watching that on a pullback too.

On the daily charts, I'll also be looking at yesterdays value area (which has held overnight) as well as the highs/lows from the day session and overnight.

Plan
- Long bias
- Would like to see a pullback to 60-61.25, 43.25 or a common level
- If no pullback, will try to scale into a position on the long side off any backstop in the order flow that appears
- For short side, I'll take a short only on a major shift in delta and decent downside volume
- Overall, I really want the market to show it's hand before engaging today
