The futures drifted lower last night, after some selling took hold late into yesterday’s afternoon session. The action was balanced, and featured a proper auctioning of price before finally determining a drift lower was in order.
The move pressed us down into the single TPO prints from yesterday which means we are opening in range/out of value verses yesterday’s trade which elevates the risk/reward for today’s session. I have a rule that will not let me trade inside of single prints unless I am going with the short term trend, which in this case is down.
I have drawn a potential scenario for today, where I expect us to run the zipper down and test the value area high at 3670.50. Should this occur, we may see a balance ensue. If we continue lower without responsive buying, our next levels are the VPOC and eventually the value area low at 3662.75.
