Today is Cycle Day 2 (CD2)…For a while yesterday, it did not look as though we would get a normal Cycle Day 1 decline, as price was firm and actually rose into Fed announcement. Sharp reversal during presser accelerated as effects of $3.1 Billion Market on Close Sell Imbalance hit the price down fulfilling 2911.50 Average Cycle Day 1 Decline and 1 tic off settlement price of 2911.75. AMAZING!
Overnight, trade is rebounding slightly from deep oversold condition. “Harry” is stuck long above 2920 handle, so recovery attempt must be strong enough to squelch any further weakness, otherwise price may revisit Cycle Day 1 Low (2907.50) for surety.
CD2 Range High = 2930.00 CD2 Range Low = 2893.50 CD2 Range Avg = 19.00
Scenario 1: IF price holds bid above 2912, THEN upside recovery targets 2916 – 2918.75 zone. Key over under will be marked at 2918 handle on any recovery attempt.
Scenario 2: IF price holds offer below 2918 handle on any recovery attempt will be sell opportunity. Further weakness below 2912 opens door to deeper downside targeting retest of 2901.50 Cycle Day 1 Low. Extreme Zone measures 2901.50 — 2897.50 cycle range low.
