U.S. stock futures are in negative territory pre-RTH
The front-month May WTI contract plunged as much as 23% overnight to under $15/bbl, the lowest level since March 1999, after losing almost a fifth of its value last week. Production cuts agreed by top producers are barely making a dent in the demand destruction wrought by COVID-19 as the world rapidly runs out of places to store crude. While the May contract expires tomorrow, adding to reasons for prices to crater, the June WTI contract also fell more than 7% to $23/bbl (the spread is usually around $0.50 – it’s now around $8-10).

We’ll keep the “High Surf Warning” posted for the foreseeable future.
Prior Session was Cycle Day 3 (CD3): Bullish Gap vaulted price above CD2 RTH High fulfilling and exceeding this Cycle’s Objectives.
…Transition from Cycle Day 3 to Cycle Day 1
This leads us into Cycle Day 1 (CD1): Objective for this cycle day is to “probe for a new secure low” from which to begin the next cycle’s rally.
Price failed to extend prior gains above previous CD3 Close (2869) and as such, this cycle’s decline has begun. Currently price has found initial buy response within 3 Day Central Pivot Zone (2813 – 2820). IF this zone is violated and converted to lower resistance, THEN lower levels are expected with CD1 Average Decline measuring 2769 – 2762 zone.
P-VA High = 2863 P-VA Low = 2825 P-POC = 2834
Bull Scenario: IF Bulls hold bid above 2821, THEN initial upside estimate targets 2831 – 2833 zone
Bear Scenario: IF Bears hold offer below 2821, THEN initial downside estimate targets 2807 – 2800 zone.
