Overnight price action continued to remain slightly below the intraday lows after a complete 100% reversal during normal trading hours. With the 2X topping action, we started to see lower highs and lower lows continuing into after-hours where price action found minor support and start to form an extended flag pattern heading into the pre-market and opening bell. Our 20MA is now converging slightly lower towards the 200MA.

Volatility continues to be extremely high with excessive intraday ranges.
