A key for the above chart to define the horizontal lines and dots. For further explanation, see this link:
A very choppy day. Those symmetrically placed volume spikes (above chart) are curious, all right around the same price too, hmmm.
5-trades; 2 shorts, 4-longs
I tried a long entry that isn't marked with an arrow. It was around 9:20 and it was for a 1.5-point loss.
The next two trades (short) were very choppy.
Third trade (long) was break-even.
Fourth trade long was decent.
Fifth trade long I lost a tick when all was said and done. After that trade I gave up on the day other wise I might have attempted a short into the close.
Higher time frame
the 65-min chart looks like it can have a small bear flag (which would align with today's choppy price behavior)
