Weekly oil stockpiles data from the Energy Information Administration are set to be released at 10:30 a.m. today, and if they confirm a drop, it would be the seventh straight fall in inventories.
***Written Tuesday evening for Wednesday’s trading for contribution to MrTopStep’s “The Opening Print” publication.
Prior Session was Cycle Day 2 (CD2): Opening Range selling pushed price down to prior M-Period Low (4630) as price probed for support. Buy response developed as bulls became confident that sellers were “cleaned-up”, took control driving price higher, closing near the high of day. Range was 80 handles on 1.687M contracts exchanged.
…Transition from Cycle Day 2 to Cycle Day 3
This leads us into Cycle Day 3 (CD3): Having closed near the high of day, bulls will need to expand beyond prior range to keep this cycle rally alive. We’ll mark this session as a “wild-card” with price sitting near 4700 options strike and key gamma levels nearby. As such, estimated scenarios to consider for today’s trading.
1.) Price sustains a bid above 4707, initially targets 4719 – 4729 zone.
2.) Price sustains an offer below 4707, initially targets 4687 – 4667 zone.
