Prior Session was Cycle Day 2 (CD2): Early strength reversed quickly as price sold down testing the July 2nd Low (3105). Buyers responded also aggressively, reversing price back higher, settling near mid of session.
…Transition from Cycle Day 2 to Cycle Day 3
This leads us into Cycle Day 3 (CD3): Price is above the CD1 Low and as such Positive 3 Day Cycle Statistic. Pre-RTH price is currently trading mid zone, so we’ll mark today as a “wild-card”. Meaning price can move freely in either direction as prior range is quite wide. We have two scenarios to consider for today’s session:
1.) Price sustains a bid above 3130, initially targeting 3145 – 3155 zone.
2.) Price sustains an offer below 3130 initially targeting 3115 – 3105 zone.
*****3 Day Cycle has a 91% probability of fulfilling Positive Statistic covering 12 years of recorded tracking history.
