Yesterday was essentially a completion of Monday’s auction. The charting software I’m currently using won’t allow me to merge these two profiles together, so we’ll have to visualize it for today.
Notice the very fragmented, low quality trade that occurred in the upper 1/3 of Monday’s profile. Now notice how much of Tuesday was spent thoroughly auctioning those prices.

We’re still above the large balance distribution from last week, the overnight session is balanced within our current profile, and we’re essentially waiting for the market to tip its hand.
