The low on 7/6/22 held the long term swing point of 3,480, this was 38.2% of the contract high on 3/23/22 and the 2020 low. Following the ONE44 38.2% rule,
"Golden Rule". This rule being, " any market that is going to keep its current trend must hold 38.2%". As long as it does the trend will continue and it should make new highs/lows from that retracement.
As long as this level holds, the long term target is new highs for the year.
The first rally from there went 38.2% back to the contract high on 7/11/22, this also lined up with the 3,691 major Gann square and it tested the low again on 7/22/22. Whenever a market fails to make a new low after hitting 38.2% above, we then look for 61.8% of that same move on the next move higher and this is 3,860. This was achieved on 8/23/22, however before then it held two other retracements below before getting there. The first was 61.8% on 8/4/22 and the second was 38.2% on 8/16/22. As you can see on the rally from the long term swing point the setbacks have been getting smaller and holding tighter retracements.
It currently is holding just above 38.2% again, this time at 3,720. Above this level we are looking for the area of the 3,930 major Gann square and 78.6% back to the contract high at 3,960. On a failure to hold 3,720 the target below is 78.6% of the rally at 3,530.
