***Written Tuesday evening for Wednesday’s trading for contribution to MrTopStep’s “The Opening Print” publication.
Prior Session was Cycle Day 2 (CD2): Price retested CD1 Low (4364), then this Cycle’s Rally began fulfilling upside Target Zone (4395 – 4400) outlined in prior DTS 11.7.23 Briefing. Prior range was 37 handles on 1.316M contracts exchanged.
…Transition from Cycle Day 2 to Cycle Day 3
This leads us into Cycle Day 3 (CD3): Prior session was a “normal” CD2 consolidation day at higher bullish target zone. There remains further upside potential targeting 4441 3 Day Cycle objective. Bulls first must “clear and convert” 4400 handle with expanding upside volume. Alternate scenario would be to continue consolidating between 4375 – 4370 zone. As such, scenarios to consider for today’s trading.
Bull Scenario: Price sustains a bid above 4395, initially targets 4415 – 4420 zone.
Bear Scenario: Price sustains an offer below 4395, initially targets 4375 – 4370 zone.
PVA High Edge = 4402 PVA Low Edge = 4385 Prior POC = 4396
