Overnight market trading very flat until just a few minutes ago when economic data had a late release. This has caused a small true gap lower putting gap rules into play.

Yesterday’s RTH session came down into the prior large balance area but really only inside of Friday’s spike high. There was no real acceptance back into that larger value area. Overnight prices have explored that a bit further but are currently trading back outside. Today’s session will be all about whether or not the market moves back into balance or not. If so, then there is potential to move back to the opposing end of balance at the we should target the opposing end of balance at 3878.50 which is the 2.10 RTH Low.


    • With overnight inventory very balanced there is little opportunity for the early trade today. Let things shake out a bit before entering any day timeframe trades.
    • Consider the area near the ONL as price exploration. As discussed above, today will be all about whether or not there is any acceptance back into the balance area which would categorize recent back to back overnight sessions as look above and fail. See Balance Rules in our glossary.
