Prior Session was Cycle Day 3 (CD3): The infamous “Santa Rally” appears to have taken flight right on cue, as “Mutual Fund Monday” gap open never looked back. Strong and persistent, albeit light volume (THIN TO WIN) rally barely gave traders an opportunity to get onboard, until the classic end of day “Dip n Rip” coupled with MOC Buy Imbalance of $1.3B propelled price to all-time closing highs. Range was 71 handles on 852k contracts exchanged.
…Transition from Cycle Day 3 to Cycle Day 1
This leads us into Cycle Day 1 (CD1): Today begins a new cycle, with the Average Decline measuring 4720. Price has cleared prior high (4784.25) fulfilling CD1 Penetration Level (4795.50) during overnight trade activity. As such, estimated scenarios to consider for today’s trading.
