Prior Session was Cycle Day 1 (CD1)…Normal / Extreme Normal CD1 decline as price notched a higher CD1 Low than prior CD3 Low. This was a bullish intra-day signal.
We stated in prior DTS Briefing 3.19.20: “… markets are desperately seeking some type of stabilization and calmness.”
During overnight trade, Nasdaq futures jumped nearly 5% to hit a ‘limit up’ level on the news, while oil is ahead by 6% and gold is 2% higher. Don’t forget that it’s also quad witching day, which can lead to higher volatility and more trading volume.
This leads us into today’s Cycle Day 2 (CD2)…Price has rallied off the “secure” Cycle Day 1 Low (2275), reaching and exceeding Cycle Statistical Extreme Zone between 2465 – 2475.
P – VA High = 2440 P – VA Low = 2385 P – POC = 2406
Bull Scenario: IF Bulls hold bid above 2400, THEN initial upside estimate targets 2465 – 2475 zone
Bear Scenario: IF Bears hold offer below 2400, THEN initial downside estimate targets 2380 – 2350 zone.
