Hello, First time poster, long time lurker. I have started trading ES. I have noticed something that would seem to go against common ideas, like most things it would seem in this game. Anyway, here is my question. When the market is moving down, all the size would seem to be on the bid, yet the price continues to fall. Why is this? One would have thought that logically, it would be the other way around, i.e. falling market, everybody is selling. The inverse is true for a rising market. I have read the CBOT handbook for Market Profile, although I do not use this price display. I thought it would be good from an educational standpoint. My thoughts so far are that that big size I can see going against the trend or move are from the non-commercial interests looking to scalp perhaps (As price moves downwards, it attracts buying and visa-versa). Where as the commercials are the ones making the move happen and are just steam rollering the poor non-commercials who are providing the liquidity for the commercials to steam-roller. This sounds like a losing proposition to me though. Clearly it can not be, as otherwise there would be no non-commercials. Can anybody please explain this? Thank you in advance.
