Today is Cycle Day 3 (CD3)…Price tested and holding above key 2700 level in overnight trade, but failing to find an aggressive bid. Bulls will need to hold bid above 2705.75 prior close and push to get back above 2739.00 CD1 Low. Violation and conversion below 2700 could force long liquidation margin selling.
Market Bias: Short-term: Bearish (correction)
CD3 Range High = 2725.50 CD3 Range Low = 2687.00 CD3 Range Avg = 30.25
