Bullish Scenario:

Stop 1010, buying bias (including Globex), risk 1~1.5 points.target 1039-1045, but yesterday's hi 1021.50 needs to be taken out before 7:30 first.

Pull Back for testing 1009, 1000 scenario:

If yesterday's high 1021.50 is intact for more than 1 hour, it should test 1009-7, then 1002 before more bounce. If you had shorted 1/2 5 mins before the close (in stocks room), take profit at 1010-1012.

Opening Update: Stop 1025, selling bias, 1/2 profit taking at 1021-2, 2/2 profit taking at 1015-7 or use trailing stop, 1012 violation indicates 1007, 1003 testing. Expected close 1010~1011.50. [Result: Opened 1024, high 1024.25, low 1004.50, closed 1014]
