Tuesday’s Session was Cycle Day 3 (CD3): All markets managed to get a Positive 3 Day Rally for the Globex Session, however most failed for the RTH Session. Range was 107 handles on 2.240M contracts exchanged.
…Transition from Cycle Day 3 to Cycle Day 1
This leads us into Cycle Day 1 (CD1): Markets may try to negate the failure by rallying early since the decline is already in place. As such, estimated scenarios to consider for today’s trading.
1.) Price sustains a bid above 4350, initially targets 4375 – 4385 zone.
2.) Price sustains an offer below 4350, initially targets 4325 – 4300 zone.
