Prior Session was Cycle Day 3 (CD3): This week started where last week ended…”Risk-Off” sentiment prevailed as gap lower set this day’s tone. Support Zone (4420 – 25) ultimately succumbed to the persistent selling pressure during final 60 minutes, settling near low of the day. Prior range was 88 handles on 1.382M contracts exchanged.
