Prior Session was Cycle Day 2 (CD2): Early bids faded quickly as price reversed direction and persistent selling throughout this day ended with closing near lows. Range was 86 handles on 1.926M contracts exchanged.
…Transition from Cycle Day 2 to Cycle Day 3
This leads us into Cycle Day 3 (CD3): Price is currently trading below CD1 Low (4560) during overnight activity. Odds favor recovering back above this level during RTH, as there is historically a 91% chance of Positive 3 Day Cycle. Of course, flip-side is a failure with recent “risk-off” sentiment. As such, estimated scenarios to consider for today’s trading.
1.) Price sustains a bid above 4548, initially targets 4560 – 4565 zone.
2.) Price sustains an offer below 4548, initially targets 4530 – 4525 zone.
