Today’s Hypotheses: September 2017 (U) Contract

*****The levels outlined below are more general framework within a larger range…They are to be used are reference prices from which to consider trade opportunities, not hard trade levels.

Scenario 1: IF price penetrates and converts 2438 to upper support, THEN upside targets 2445 handle.

Scenario 2: IF price violates and converts 2428 to lower resistance, THEN downside targets 2417 handle.

Trade Strategy: Our tactical trade strategy will simply remain unaltered…We’ll be flexible to trade both long and short side from Decision Pivot Levels. Continue to focus on Bull/Bear Stackers and Premium/Discounts. As always, remaining in alignment with dominant intra-day force increases probabilities of producing winning trades.

Stay Focused…Non-Biased…Disciplined  ALWAYS USE STOPS!

Good Trading…David

Crude fell into a bear market on Tuesday, sinking another 2.2% to settle at a nine-month low of $43.23/bbl. The big fear gripping the energy industry is that the world continues to have too much oil, despite a deal between OPEC and Russia to pump less. Game of chicken? The supply glut could be deepened by U.S. shale producers that have ramped up output in recent months.

The Federal Reserve is widely expected to raise interest rates by a quarter point to a target range of 1%-1.25% when it concludes its policy meeting today. A hike would be the second this year, and the fourth of the cycle it began in December 2015. Markets are also focused on what the Fed will say about reducing its $4.5T balance sheet and when and how the process will begin.

Today’s Hypotheses: September 2017 (U) Contract

*****The levels outlined below are more general framework within a larger range…They are to be used are reference prices from which to consider trade opportunities, not hard trade levels.

Scenario 1: IF price clears and converts 2439.25 (PH), THEN initial upside targets 2442.50, followed by measured layered levels between 2445.75 – 2457.

Scenario 2: IF price violates and converts 2435 (ONL), THEN lower levels measures 2429 3 Day Central Pivot Zone, followed by 2425.25 (CD1 Low)

Trade Strategy: Our tactical trade strategy will simply remain unaltered…We’ll be flexible to trade both long and short side from Decision Pivot Levels. Continue to focus on Bull/Bear Stackers and Premium/Discounts. As always, remaining in alignment with dominant intra-day force increases probabilities of producing winning trades.

Stay Focused…Non-Biased…Disciplined  ALWAYS USE STOPS!

Good Trading…David
