***Written Tuesday evening for Wednesday’s trading for contribution to MrTopStep’s “The Opening Print” publication.
Prior Session was Cycle Day 2 (CD2): Normal CD2 as CPI print gyrated price between TargetMaster’s upper and lower statistical 2-Sigma Zones. Session settlement had price trading near the upper 3 Day Cycle Target.(4158). Prior range was 82 handles on 2.316M contracts exchanged.
…Transition from Cycle Day 2 to Cycle Day 3
This leads us into Cycle Day 3 (CD3): We’ll mark today as a “wild-card” as price is near to fulfilling cycle target and has safely secured positive cycle statistic. We would still anticipate continued oscillations between range parameters (4125 – 4175). As such, scenarios to consider for today’s trading.
Bull Scenario: Price sustains a bid above 4150, initially targets 4170 – 4175 zone.
Bear Scenario: Price sustains an offer below 4150, initially targets 4125 – 4120 zone.
PVA High Edge = 4156 PVA Low Edge = 4125 Prior POC = 4145
*****The 3 Day Cycle has a 91% probability of fulfilling Positive Cycle Statistics covering 12 years of recorded tracking history.
