Prior Session was Cycle Day 1 (CD1): Price “flip-flopped” around CD1 Average Decline Target (3557), which was also the Line-in-Sand (LIS). Successful testing of both upper and lower range edges settled price mid-range. Range was 40.50 handles on 1.239M contracts exchanged.
…Transition from Cycle Day 1 to Cycle Day 2
This leads us into Cycle Day 2 (CD2): Normal for CD2 is for some ‘back n fill’ consolidation to absorb and balance recent price swings. Price successfully tested CD1 Low (3542.25) for surety, at which time this cycle’s rally began, currently trading past 3-day Cycle Target (3575) and into 3-day Central Pivot Zone (3579 – 3587). As such, there are two estimated scenarios to consider for today’s trading.
1.) Price sustains a bid above 3575, initially targets 3583 – 3587 zone.
2.) Price sustains an offer below 3575, initially targets 3565 – 3563 zone.
