1) for the second day I am seeing "hairy" candles on the 1-minute chart --
wicks on top and on bottom.
2) in the meantime, the ATR is still maintaining an average below 1.0 pts for the 6-minute SMA.
3) in the mean-meantime (the mean²time??), the cyclic movements just *so* match the ("tuned") trend and oscillator indicators....
This looks like the money-making days of old.
(Or my brain is just GOING away.)
Anybody tick-scalping right now?? 1-second to 1-or2-minute holds?
(They've probably all been killed off. This is a rainstorm in a desert.)
When volatility returns "consistently" to the S&P 500...most retail traders will return to the S&P 500 including scalpers instead of trading in an environment mainly suitable for algorithm traders (algorithm scalpers).
