CD3 Range High = 2837.50          CD3 Range Low = 2801.50          CD3 Range Avg = 23.50 

Scenario 1: IF Bulls hold bid above 2826.50, THEN initial upside target measures 2832 – 2835 zone.

Scenario 2: IF Bears hold offer below 2826.50, THEN initial downside target measures 2814 – 2812 zone. Conversion below this zone targets 2804 – 2801.50 CD3 Low Range 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!

Good Trading…David
