A slow, low volume session balancing at higher prices within initial support but failing to re-test the overnight high. The 60.50-61.50 IS zone was tested several times with underlying stock momentum and breadth weak, but it still managed to hold.
Settlement was at 2463.75, 1 tick above the RTH VPOC
Overnight so far the market has squeezed higher, with a range currently of 2461.50-71.25, and moving higher. My main expectation is for sellers to step in at the 73.00-74.75 IR zone and for trade to churn between the IR zone and the short term bull/bear zone (61.50-64.00) ahead of the FOMC minutes later today. We may not see any directional conviction until either of those zones is broken with sustained momentum, volume and market breadth.
