*****The levels outlined below are more general framework within a larger range…They are to be used are reference prices from which to consider trade opportunities, not hard trade levels. We will identify specific trade levels in Trading Room.

Bull _ Bear Scenarios
Scenario 1: Bulls will need to hold 2258 – 60 zone as support and force a push above 2268 – 70 zone to get shorts concerned.
Scenario 2: Violation and conversion back below 2258 – 60 zone places additional pressure on longs to liquidate.

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!

Good Trading…David
