Tuesday’s Session was Cycle Day 2 (CD2): Price continued to power higher surpassing even the most bullish cycle range target. (MOC) was a $3.2 billion sell imbalance. Range was 110 handles on 1.672M contracts exchanged.
…Transition from Cycle Day 2 to Cycle Day 3
This leads us into Cycle Day 3 (CD3): Momentum favors the bulls, so ball control is theirs to lose. Since cycle objectives have been fulfilled and surpassed, momentum may push price higher, but failure to sustain a bid above Prior High (4697) may attract a deeper pullback to find renewed buy response. As such, estimated scenarios to consider for today’s trading.
1.) Price sustains a bid above 4697, initially targets 4712 – 4715 zone.
2.) Price sustains an offer below 4697, initially targets 4683 – 4680 zone.
*****The 3 Day Cycle has a 91% probability of fulfilling Positive Cycle Statistics covering 12 years of recorded tracking history.
