Tuesday price action chops sideways: Brooks

Brooks Price Action Analysis for Tuesday, April 8

pending chart 2761

Strong reversal after breakout below bottom of trading range. Probably two legs up on 5 minute chart tomorrow, but then probably two legs down on 60 minute chart soon. Weekly sell or short triggered so possible high of next several months. Probably will test bottom of weekly channel (�short in may and go away�) and possible 1700 within next few months. Reasonable area to consider buying put spreads or on bounce, possible to 1870, for 10% pullback.
