Tuesday’s Session was Cycle Day 1 (CD1): Cycle Day 3’s decline fulfilled the downside range objective setting up Cycle Day 1 Low (3636.25) which was successfully tested during overnight trade. The rally which began during the Globex Session took firm control above 3660 handle which was yesterday’s Line-In-Sand (LIS).
Upside objective of 3688 – 3690 zone which was highlighted in PTG Trading Room has been fulfilled. Range was 52.25 handles on 1.218M contracts exchanged.
…Transition from Cycle Day 1 to Cycle Day 2
This leads us into Cycle Day 2 (CD2): Core cycle objectives have been fulfilled. As such, with price closing near previous session high, momentum may take price above 2-day high of 3690. Should this unfold, price is within striking distance of retesting all-time highs. Potential retracement within range would initially target 3675 handle. There are two estimated scenarios to consider for today’s trading.
1.) Price sustains a bid above 3690, initially targets 3700 – 3715 zone.
2.) Price sustains an offer below 3690, initially targets 3675 – 3660 zone.
*****3 Day Cycle has a 91% probability of fulfilling Positive Statistic covering 12 years of recorded tracking history.
