*****To place the 3 Day Cycle into proper context, it’s important to discuss the “cycle transition” from day-to-day. That is, we cannot assess each cycle day independently without referencing the adjacent cycle days.
PTG Briefing Note (Monday) to subscribers stated: “Prior Session was Cycle Day 3 (CD3)…Price fulfilled Positive 3 Day Cycle Statistics early in the session following FED’s announcement, but quickly faded, retesting session lows. Firm bid into the closing rotation set the tone for a continuation rally as we previewed this Scenario with PTG’s Live Trading Room Community.”
From our Trading Room (Monday Night): >>PTGDavid:(10:00:39 PM): @ES Looking good during Asian Session…Bullish Bids abound…Price holding and rallying from Prior VAH>>>One of the bullish scenarios we covered prepping for Cycle Day 1
…Transition from Cycle Day 3 to Cycle Day 1
Tuesday’s Session was Cycle Day 1…Normal for CD1 is some magnitude decline. Strong bids squelched any decline as price rallied to “limit-up” and into the 3 Day Central Pivot Zone between 2300 – 2342. Bulls will need to convert this zone to support in order to continue the current rally. Further upside target 2360…2386…2400 Roundie
…Transition from Cycle Day 1 to Cycle Day 2
This leads us into today’s Cycle Day 2…Price gapped higher in the prior session and never looked back, continuing the rally which actually began during Cycle Day 3 “limit-down” to 2173.75. Price has fulfilled CD2 Upper Penetration target of 2460.65 as well as clearing the all-important 3 Day Central Pivot Zone. Bulls will need to hold any back-test of this zone should selling materialize. Further upside hurdles remain, but if this is the beginning of the “repair-process” and not simply a “dead-cat” bounce, then Bulls will need to prove their metal.
P – VA High = 2410 P – VA Low = 2360 P – POC = 2375
Bull Scenario: IF Bulls hold bid above 2416, THEN initial upside estimate targets 2460 – 2490 zone
Bear Scenario: IF Bears hold offer below 2416, THEN initial downside estimate targets 2375 – 2350 zone.

Nasdaq 100 (NQ)
Today is Cycle Day 2 (CD2)…Overnight rally which fulfilled CD2 Upper Penetration Targets (7596 – 7632) has faded pre-RTH back to 7490 POC. Expectation for today is for some “back n fill” with a positive skew to hold recent rally.
P – VA High = 7465 P – VA Low = 7355 P – POC = 7430
Bull Scenario: IF Bulls hold bid above 7412, THEN initial upside estimate targets 7596 – 7632 zone.
Bear Scenario: IF Bears hold offer below 7412, THEN initial downside estimate targets 7390 – 7355 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!
