Today’s Hypotheses: December (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 convert PH (2031.50) THEN initial upside targets 2034.75, followed by 2040.50.
Scenario 2: Failure to convert PH (2031.50) opens door to decline initially targeting 2018…Violation and conversion of this level targets 2015, then 2012 and 2008 SPOTs.
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!
