Prior Session was Cycle Day 1 (CD1): Normal CD1 unfolded as selling spilled over into this session, finding a buy response at the 12.21.21 low. Range expansion was 109 handles on 2.152M, more than twice the average contracts exchanged.
…Transition from Cycle Day 1 to Cycle Day 2
This leads us into Cycle Day 2 (CD2): Price also rallied during prior session, once the low was secured. Cycle target objectives have been fulfilled during prior session. Normal for CD2 is for some consolidation and balancing of prior session’s sell-down and rally. Powell is testifying on Capitol Hill this morning, so price may “wiggle-waggle” throughout this period. As such, estimated scenarios to consider for today’s trading.
1.) Price sustains a bid above 4678, initially targets 4688 – 4692 zone.
2.) Price sustains an offer below 4678, initially targets 4668 – 4663 zone.
