Calling the sanction “another powerful blow to Putin’s war machine,” President Biden has announced a U.S. ban on Russian oil imports, as well as natural gas and other energy sources. About 8% of American imports of oil and refined products, or about 672K barrels a day, came from Russia last year, according to the Energy Information Administration. Crude continues to soar on the news, while the national average for a gallon of gas has hit $4.25 per gallon, up from $3.65 only a week ago

Prior Session was Cycle Day 3 (CD3): ES traded back and forth in a volatile session marked by 50 handle swings. 3 Day Cycle objectives failed to deliver. Range was 136 handles on 2.260M 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 the 4171 – 4164 zone, which has been fulfilled, so this cycle’s rally can begin at any time. Expectation remains intact for continued volatility during this session and for the foreseeable future. Best to control your trade risk and focus only on your Triple A Trade (TAT). As such, estimated scenarios to consider for today’s trading.
Bull Scenario: Price sustains bid above 4200, initially targets 4248 – 4251 zone.
Bear Scenario: Price sustains offer below 4200, initially targets 4175 – 4165 zone.
