Prior Session was Cycle Day 1 (CD1): Normal CD1 as price put in late session low at 3356. Range was 30.50 handles on 1.0M contracts traded.
…Transition from Cycle Day 1 to Cycle Day 2
This leads us into Cycle Day 2 (CD2): Price has rallied roughly 10 handles from prior session close in quiet trade. Expectation is for a normal CD2 consolidation day type. Support marked at 3365 and resistance 3380. We have two scenarios to consider for today’s trading.
1.) Price sustains a bid above 3370, initially targeting 3380 – 3385 zone.
2.) Price sustains an offer below 3370, initially targeting 3365 – 3360 zone.

Continue to focus on Bull/Bear Stackers and Premium/Discounts. As always, remaining in alignment with dominant intra-day force increases probabilities of producing winning trades.
Stay Focused…Non-Biased…Disciplined ALWAYS USE STOPS!
