Prior Session was Cycle Day 2 (CD2): Quiet summer session with range and volumes sub-par…VIX with a 16 handle..All a bullish recipe for all-time highs. Range was 23 handles on 798k contracts exchanged.
…Transition from Cycle Day 2 to Cycle Day 3
This leads us into Cycle Day 3 (CD3): We’ll mark this day as a “wild-card” as cycle objectives have been met and exceeded. With price near ATH and a quiet economic calendar, today could be another quiet session, as Mutual Fund Monday may have the greatest influence.
