S&P 500

Today is Cycle Day 3 …Continued fallout from the missed ISM Report pushed price lower to 200% of 10-day Average True Range which is a rare occurrence in prior session. Buyers responded aggressively and price rebound back to VWAP by session close where it is currently trading in overnight action. Bulls need a conversion above 2895 – 2900 zone. Bears are expected to defend to keep a lid. Further downside potential measures 2860 – 2850 zone for this Cycle.

Scenario 1: IF Bulls hold bid above 2883, THEN initial upside targets 2893 – 2900 zone.

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
