US500.jpg

- Average Daily Range (ADR) High: 5535.20

- Average Daily Range (ADR) Low: 5435.70

- Supply Zones (Sells): 5484.64

- Demand Zones (Buys): 5436.93

Yesterday's price surge reached a new all-time high of 5497.91, from which a correction is expected below the daily opening (D1:O), as long as the price can move below the current volume concentration around 5484.64.

Bearish Correction:

The primary scenario is a bearish correction below 5481 with targets at 5452 and 5437 more extended. The latter represents an important demand zone where the weekly opening, the average bearish range, and yesterday's uncovered Point of Control (POC) converge. The bulls may defend this demand zone to produce a renewed surge.

Bullish Continuation:

Purchases will reactivate after the necessary pullback to the aforementioned buy liquidity zone, targeting the round level of 5500 and the average bullish range of 5535.20 in the short term.

The last relevant intraday support is located at 5426.81, implying that as long as this level is not broken, we will continue observing the price surge.

Uncovered POC: Point of Control: It is the level or zone where the highest volume concentration occurred. If there was a previous downward movement from it, it is considered a sell zone and forms a resistance area. Conversely, if there was a previous upward impulse, it is considered a buy zone, usually situated at lows, forming support areas.
