The economic symposium down in Jackson Hole was about as hawkish as investors could have expected, sending markets into a tailspin on Friday. All three major averages slumped between 3%-4%, sending risk-off signals to other sectors and asset classes (Bitcoin fell below $20K for the first time since early July). Sentiment may remain dented in the week ahead, or stay at somewhat of a standstill until the release of fresh market data (home prices on Tuesday and the jobs report on Friday). U.S. stock futures: Dow -0.9%; S&P 500 -1.1%; Nasdaq -1.3%.

Prior Session was Cycle Day 2 (CD2): Hawks flying high in Jackson Hole as JPOW delivered the “pain” speech. Prices cascaded across the broad landscape closing the week near it’s low. Range was 174 handles on 2.129M contracts exchanged.
…Transition from Cycle Day 2 to Cycle Day 3
This leads us into Cycle Day 3 (CD3): Price is well below CD1 Low (4143) and given the current “risk-off” sentiment, odds favor a failed cycle. Market will be searching for some stabilization today above 4000 level as seen as “key strike support.” As such, estimated scenarios to consider for today’s trading.
Bull Scenario: Price sustains bid above 4025, initially targets 4035 – 4040 zone.
Bear Scenario: Price sustains offer below 4025, initially targets 4005 – 4000 zone.
PVA High Edge = 4138 PVA Low Edge = 4052 Prior POC = 4063
