Monday’s Session was Cycle Day 1…Price vaulted higher on GLOBEX OPEN (Sunday evening) and never looked back. RTH Session “Jump-The-Creek” Gap Open was powerful, as strong bids persisted throughout the session. Market-on-Close (MOC) Buy topped $6 billion as Mutual Funds put $ to work which they sold last month.
…Transition from Cycle Day 1 to Cycle Day 2
This leads us into today’s Cycle Day 2…During GLOBEX Session price has continued its prior session rally, pushing nearly 100 handles (2.5%) from prior close. Price has also retraced approximately 50% from peak-to-trough.
Normal expectation for CD2 is for “back n fill” throughout the session to absorb recent gains. We are anticipating 2690 – 2710 zone to develop some balance on pullbacks. Continue to respect the current trend conditions, but no chasing price. Be patient for natural support zone to develop.
P – VA High = 2630 P – VA Low = 2592 P – POC = 2616
Bull Scenario: IF Bulls hold bid above 2710, THEN initial upside estimate targets 2735 – 2745 zone
Bear Scenario: IF Bears hold offer below 2710, THEN initial downside estimate targets 2690 – 2680 zone.
