Prior Session was Cycle Day 3 (CD3): Early successful test of CD1 resulted in end of month rally which took price higher closing near high of day. Range of 61.25 handles and 2.118M contracts exchanged.
…Transition from Cycle Day 3 to Cycle Day 1
This leads us into Cycle Day 1 (CD1): Rally momentum from prior session is carrying over throughout GLOBEX Session with price near CD1 Penetration Level (3284). Normal for a CD1 is for some magnitude decline with average measuring 3247. We then have two scenarios to consider for today’s trading.
1.) Price sustains a bid above 3274, initially targeting 3285 – 3300 zone.
2.) Price sustains an offer below 3274, initially targeting 3265 – 3255 zone.
P -VA High = 3248 P – VA Low = 3220 P – POC = 3227

Trade Strategy: Our tactical trade strategy will simply remain unaltered…We’ll be flexible to trade both long and short side from Decision Pivot Levels. 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!
