Prior Session was Cycle Day 3 (CD3): Early rally fulfilled 3 Day Cycle Objectives (3315) before reversing direction, testing 3270 key support, then reverted back to 3300 (LIS) by the close. Range was 80.25 handles on 1.811M contracts exchanged.
…Transition from Cycle Day 3 to Cycle Day 1
This leads us into Cycle Day 1 (CD1): Price is trading higher pre-RTH having already fulfilled CD1 Penetration Target (3345). Of course, today being Election Day across the USA will have price “squealin and dealin” with every vowel and syllable uttered by the media. As such, there are two scenarios to consider for today’s trading.
1.) Price sustains a bid above 3338, initially targets 3345 – 3350 zone.
2.) Price sustains an offer below 3338, initially targets 3325 – 3320 zone.
