Tuesday’s Session was Cycle Day 2 (CD2): This cycle’s rally continued to push higher fulfilling target 4590 outlined in prior DTS 10.25.21 briefing report. Range was 29 handles on 1.211M contracts exchanged.
…Transition from Cycle Day 2 to Cycle Day 3
This leads us into Cycle Day 3 (CD3): Cycle objectives have been fulfilled with price trading near fresh all-time highs. As such the decline could begin at any time, and for many would be welcomed. We’ll mark this session as a “wild-card” as BTFD strategies continue to be successful. So, until the powers at work decide to shift gears, we’ll ride their trading coattails. As such, estimated scenarios to consider for today’s trading.
1.) Price sustains a bid above 4558, initially targets 4575 – 4580 zone.
2.) Price sustains an offer below 4558, initially targets 4548 – 4542 zone.
*****The 3 Day Cycle has a 91% probability of fulfilling Positive Cycle Statistics covering 12 years of recorded tracking history.

Trade Strategy: Our tactical trade strategy will simply remain unaltered…We’ll be flexible to trade both long and short side from Decision Pivot Levels. Continue to focus on Bull/Bear Stackers and Premium/Discounts. As always, remaining in alignment with dominant intra-day force increases probabilities of producing winning trades.
Stay Focused…Non-Biased…Disciplined ALWAYS USE STOPS!
