On a macro basis: I cautioned on 8/16/18 the break back above $1,179.7-$1,183.7 warned of renewed strength. We have seen $605.1 of this. The break above $1,347.0 projects this upward $80 minimum, $320 (+) maximum. We have attained $441.3 of this so far. We are likely in the later stage of the bull structure from $1,046.8 upward. On 4/2 we left a bullish reversal below that warned of continued strength. We have seen $167.6 so far. These are now OFF HOLD. This week again warns of a range expansion.
On a shorter-term basis: The break above the $1,705.8 (-2.3 tics per/hour) projected this upward $28 minimum. We have attained $29.7 so far. This is now OFF HOLD as well. This comes in at $1,683.3 (-2.3 tics per/hour starting at 8:20am). Decent trade below $1,699.1 (+1 tic per/hour starting at 8:20am) will project this downward $27 minimum, $95 (+) maximum; but if we break below here decently and back above decently, look for decent short covering to come in.
