Prior Session was Cycle Day 3 (CD3): Trade action played like a “well-tuned fiddle” as decline occurred as outlined in prior DTS 12/9/20. “Core cycle objectives have been fulfilled. As such, with price being at all-time highs, there is increased potential for a pullback/decline developing. We’ll mark today’s CD3 as a “wild-card”, as there is plenty of room for down side should profit-taking unfold.” Range was 55.25 handles on 1.677M contracts exchanged.
…Transition from Cycle Day 3 to Cycle Day 1
This leads us into Cycle Day 1 (CD1): Normal for CD1 is some magnitude decline, with average measuring 3664 which was fulfilled during prior session’s sell-off. Overnight bounce attempt has failed with price currently trading near lows. As such, there are two estimated scenarios to consider for today’s trading.
1.) Price sustains a bid above 3664, initially targets 3675 – 3680 zone.
2.) Price sustains an offer below 3664, initially targets 3650 – 3645 zone.
