Tuesday’s Session was Cycle Day 1 (CD1): Most of the session was of the moderately choppy variety, as it was an “inside-inside” value type day. Price did eventually decline to the projected CD1 Average Decline Target (3772) before rallying back fulfilling Average Rally Target (3792.75). Range was 38.75 handles on 1.195M contracts exchanged.
…Transition from Cycle Day 1 to Cycle Day 2
This leads us into Cycle Day 2 (CD2): Part of this cycle’s rally is in-place, so expectation is for potentially more consolidation activity before breaking out directionally. There are two estimated scenarios to consider for today’s trading.
1.) Price sustains a bid above 3800, initially targets 3810 – 3820 zone.
2.) Price sustains an offer below 3785, initially targets 3775 – 3770 zone.
