Early selling at the open intensified as price repaired previous multiple poor lows on the daily Market Profile charts, but falling short of repairing the the poor lows from 10/9, 10/3.
Apparent short covering off the G period two-tick excess low rallied price back 17 points to one tick below the A period single print.
The selloff gained momentum after price broke through the prior three day balance low and bounced back exactly to that level and halfback from A period, suggesting the move lower was initiated by shorter time frame momentum traders.
The late rally high at 2558.75 could be an early important trading reference on Thursday, acceptance back above that price level and into the upper distribution probably targets Wednesday’s high and potentially the very prominent point of control from 10/24 at 2567.50, and the poor high from that profile at 2570.25.
Failure to find acceptance back above 2558.75 could keep the downward tone from Wednesday in tact. Price had stopped one timeframing higher on the weekly chart on Wednesday. For more potential serious change price would have to trade below a prior weekly low at 2539.25 and test the current October low.
Price has been one timeframing higher on the monthly chart since the November 2016 Presidential election, if it can close near the October low at 2517.50 by the end of the month the odds could be good that the monthly one timeframing would be challenged in November.
The current all time high was made in the overnight electronic session at 2577.25, something to carry forward as to date, any all time high made in the Globex market has always been traded through during a regular US hour trading session. Although, however, it can remain untested for quite some time.
