Prior Session was Cycle Day 2 (CD2): Gap higher into “key resistance” (4360 – 4365) failed to hold bid and selling pressure steadily increased throughout the day resulting with a close near lows of session. Range was 53.75 handles on 1.504M contracts exchanged.
…Transition from Cycle Day 2 to Cycle Day 3
This leads us into Cycle Day 3 (CD3): 3-Day Cycle Target (4367) has been fulfilled, but price is currently trading well below CD1 Low (4332.50). Though cycle objectives have been achieved, current weakness serves as an “early warning” signal that traders may want to “re-price” merchandise, given changes in investor sentiment. Estimated scenarios to consider for today’s trading.
1.) Price sustains a bid above 4280, initially targets 4300 – 4310 zone.
2.) Price sustains an offer below 4280, initially targets 4265 – 4250 zone.
*****3 Day Cycle has a 91% probability of fulfilling Positive Cycle Statistics covering 12 years of recorded tracking history.
