…Transition from Cycle Day 2 to Cycle Day 3
Today is a Cycle Day 3 (CD3)…Markets are slightly off highs from previous session, but still have a firm underlying bid. Bulls will be looking to extend gains, although Cycle Objectives have been fulfilled, we won’t rule out a pullback to absorb rally gains. Three-Day Central Pivot Zone (2569 – 2539) is expected to offer support should price decline.
PVA High Edge = 2616 PVA Low Edge = 2575 Prior POC = 2592
Bull Scenario: IF Bulls hold bid above 2590, THEN initial upside estimate targets 2610 – 2620 zone.
Bear Scenario: IF Bears hold offer below 2590, THEN initial downside estimate targets 2580 – 2570 zone.

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!
