Prior Session was Cycle Day 2 (CD2): End of week selling hit the markets hard, closing on the lows of the week. Market of Close Sell Imbalance $5.8 Billion capped the selling sentiment. Range was 146 handles on 1.955M contracts exchanged.
…Transition from Cycle Day 2 to Cycle Day 3
This leads us into Cycle Day 3 (CD3): Markets are on the verge of a failed 3-Day Cycle should they fail to recover CD1 Low (4380). Bulls have quite the uphill battle.
