Chinese stocks surged today on news the country would further open its markets to foreign investment by establishing a trading link between Shenzhen and Hong Kong by the end of the year. The People’s Bank of China later clarified that the comments from Governor Zhou Xiaochuan were made in May, while plans for the link still need regulatory approval and a deal has not yet been made. That didn’t stop Chinese markets from soaring: Shanghai +4.3%; Hang Seng +2.1%; Shenzhen +5.1%.

Until there is a meaningful change in balance of power, it’s buy the pullback to key decision points.
Overnight trade is quiet and range is relative narrow, between 2100 – 2108.75. Expansion above prior high 2110.25 is required to reach this Cycle Target of 2122.50.

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: Bulls have the ball…IF price can clear and convert PH (2110.25), THEN initial upside targets 2113.75 – 2115.00…Above this zone measures 2118.50, then 2121.25 – 2122.50.
Scenario 2: Any decline should be viewed as a buying opportunity from larger institutional traders/investors, so any decline may be relatively shallow. Levels to be mindful of on any decline are: 2100.00 Central Pivot which is initial support. Below this level are 2096.25, 2093.50, 2091.00 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!
