Prior Session was Cycle Day 2 (CD2): As expected for CD2, bullish consolidation unfolded early, holding above Open Range High. Once P-High was cleared, trend extension up drew a test of key 4300 (strike). Range was 56 handles on 1.275M contracts exchanged.
…Transition from Cycle Day 2 to Cycle Day 3
This leads us into Cycle Day 3 (CD3): There is some additional upside to fulfill 3D target (4322), though failure to convert P-High (4304.75) may open door for next decline. Key Strike (4300) is “sticky” heading into OPEX. As such, estimated scenarios to consider for today’s trading.
Bull Scenario: Price sustains bid above 4285, initially targets 4300 – 4305 zone.
Bear Scenario: Price sustains offer below 4285, initially targets 4275 – 4270 zone.
PVA High Edge = 4303 PVA Low Edge = 4272 Prior POC = 4299
