We’ll keep the “HIGH SURF WARNING FLAG” posted as volatility remains elevated, with VIX 40 and ATR (10) 105 handles.
Monday’s Session was Cycle Day 2 (CD2): Session unfolded as a “normal” CD2 with price initially declining to test “key support” 2715 as outlined in prior DTS 4.13.20 briefing. Price oscillated throughout the day from VAL to VAH and closed with bullish bias above CD1 Low (2752.25).
…Transition from Cycle Day 2 to Cycle Day 3
This leads us into Cycle Day 3 (CD3): 3 Day Cycle Objectives have been fulfilled (2807.50) during GLOBEX. Bullish trend remains intact, as it would take a violation and conversion of 2700 Roundie to squelch the current sentiment.
PVA High Edge = 2747 PVA Low Edge = 2722 Prior POC = 2730
Bull Scenario: IF Bulls hold bid above 2780, THEN initial upside estimate targets 2800 – 2820 zone.
Bear Scenario: IF Bears hold offer below 2780, THEN initial downside estimate targets 2780 – 2760 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!
