Prior trade session produced a CD1 normal decline as price hit projected low outlined in Scenario 2:  “IF price violates and converts 2572 (POC) to resistance, THEN downside targets 2565.” Low of Day = 2565.50.

Tuesday is Cycle Day 2 (CD2)…Part of the rally off CD1 Low is in place in overnight trade…Additional gains are required to secure cycle low. Violation and conversion of 2565.50 to lower resistance would suggest deeper decline. Upside targets 2576, followed by 2580 range projection.

Tuesday is Cycle Day 3 (CD3)…3 Day Cycle Target (2577.25) has been achieved and with prior session’s pullback is holding above 3 Day Central Pivot Zone (2562.75 – 2564.75). We will mark this zone as “key support” if until it is violated and converted to resistance. Larger uptrend remains solidly intact.

We asked the question in prior DTS Briefing 10.19.17 “Lower Cycle Targets have been fulfilled overnight, so it will be of utmost importance as to how the RTH Session handles the break. Will it be BTFD or STFB?”

BTFD = “Buy The “effing” Dip”    STFB = “Sell The “effing” Bounce”

Verdict is in…It was clearly BTFD!  This keeps the rally intact with expectation of higher levels over the comings days. Options Expiration is on tap for Friday, so both directions may be in-play for today’s session.

Friday is Cycle Day 1 (CD1)…Normal is for some magnitude decline with average measuring 2547 handle. Early sign of weakness would be violation and conversion of 2558 handle, followed by break of 2556.75 – 54 3 Day Central Pivot Zone.

STAY NIMBLE and ALWAYS USE PROTECTIVE STOPS.

Today’s Hypotheses: December 2017 (Z) 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 PH (2561.50), THEN upside targets measures 2570.25, followed by 2573 cycle range high.

Scenario 2:  IF price violates and converts 2558 to lower resistance, THEN downside targets 2554 VPOC, followed by 2547 CD1 average decline.

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

*****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:  Bulls will need to absorb the overnight selling above 2545 – 43 zone and recover back to 2555 handle.

Scenario 2:  Bears are elated this morning with the overnight break, but they need to continue to now press to take full control. 2545 – 43 zone needs to break for extended push lower.
