Prior Session was Cycle Day 2 (CD2): Optimistic bullish sentiment sent prices higher during morning session, but gains quickly faded as aggressive sellers pummeled price lower on yet another “Range-Runner” Day Type.
…Transition from Cycle Day 2 to Cycle Day 3
This leads us into Cycle Day 3 (CD3): Price has fulfilled cycle objectives, notching a Positive 3 Day Cycle Statistic. Being end of week / month, we’ll mark today as a “wild-card” day, meaning that either direction can be “in-play”. Buyers have responded within the 3 Day Central Pivot Zone (3015 – 3020), so we will mark this as “Key Support Zone.”
*****3 Day Cycle has a 91% probability of fulfilling Positive Statistic covering 12 years of recorded tracking history.
PVA High Edge = 3051 PVA Low Edge = 3030 Prior POC = 3037
Bull Scenario: IF Bulls hold bid above 3025, THEN initial upside estimate targets 3037 – 3040 zone.
Bear Scenario: IF Bears hold offer below 3025, THEN initial downside estimate targets 3020 – 3015 zone.
