From a birds-eye view, price action crossed below the lower boundary of the multiple day triangle pattern and continued the mini market cycle phase 4 downtrend in yesterday’s pre-market and after the opening bell.  Momentum found minor support at the intraday lows area and retested the intraday low’s area forming a W-pattern and mini market cycle phase 1. With the change in momentum, price action retraced above the neckline and continued the new mini market cycle phase 2 uptrend while converging around the 20MA and crossing above the prior day’s high in after-hours. Overnight price action continued the with higher highs and higher lows heading into the opening bell. The 20MA crossed above the 200MA as momentum continues the mini market cycle phase 2.
