S&P 500 (ES)

Prior Session was a Cycle Day 1 (CD1) Normal was for a decline which unfolded and reached lower projected level during GLOBEX with 100% short inventory. Expected response was for a counter-auction to relieve the bearish condition. Open Range was bullish out of the gate as this Cycle’s Rally began to unfold, auctioning price higher filling Friday’s gap. Buyers “dried-up” near highs as sellers pushed price lower during afternoon session settling at 5-day Point of Control.

Today is a Cycle Day 2 (CD2) Normal is for “back n fill” price action as Value is forming a 3-day consolidation range. Key Line -in-Sand (LIS) is marked at 3317 for bulls to defend. Should sellers take control, retest of CD1 Low (3307.25) would be anticipated. Bears will need to defend 3-day Value High 3326. Overall bullish trend remains intact.

IF Prior High (3329.75) is cleared, THEN CD2 Upper Penetration Target Zone measures 3339 – 3341. IF 3317 (LIS) is violated and converted to lower resistance, THEN deeper downside targets CD1 Low (3307.25), followed by 3303 CD2 Violation Level.
