U.S. futures are flying higher following Donald Trump’s first address to Congress. The President pledged to overhaul the immigration system, improve jobs and wages for Americans, and promised “massive” tax relief to the middle class and tax cuts for companies. He also plans to ask Congress for $1T in infrastructure investment – guided by “Buy American and Hire American” – and laid out some principles for an Obamacare replacement.

Today is Cycle Day 3 (CD3)…Expectation for today is a “springboard” higher following a brief pullback in prior session which tested the 2357 LOD Range Projection outlined in prior DTS Briefing 2.28.17.
S&P e-mini (ES) is currently trading at 2375 which is HOD Range Projection…Keep in mind Average True Range (10) is only 12 handles, so there is plenty of room for expansion targeting 2383.50 – 2387.25 zone.
Range Projections and Key Levels
**Note: The odds highlighted are NOT predictions or trade recommendations, rather a guide based upon historical observed occurrences.
Today’s Hypotheses: March 2017 (H) 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 continue to maintain control as price cleared and converted prior 2 day high (2371) pushing on 2375 in pre-cash trade. Further upside targets range between 2378 – 2382 STATX Zone, with Cycle Targets between 2383.50 – 2387.00.
Scenario 2: Bears will need to “stop n reverse” current momentum and get trade back below 2371 handle for any shot for lower. IF successful, THEN initial downside targets 2360 – 2357 zone.
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!
