What you need to see to confirm that this is indeed the pattern is to get a "RANGE EXPANSION BAR" to the upside tomorrow (or any day). ENTER ON STRENGTH with this pattern. Use the MID-POINT of the range expansion bar as another level to buy against on the following bars and target the high of the range expansion bar as your exit.
The upside potential of a like this is a very sharp rally in very short order, so with German Bunds doing the same thing and leading us lower, we can take a cue from German Bunds (Symbol GG1! ) to see what the situation is.
Today's little "inside bar" is potentially a harbinger of lost downside momentum, but the safest way to enter is above:
1. Buying on "range expansion" tomorrow.
2. Buy over today's high (but be willing to exit if we don't get a range expansion bar to the up-side)
3. Buy dips to the mid-point of the range expansion bar in subsequent bars (even "intra-day" if you see it)
Time will tell. This is a set-up only and the "ENTRY REQUIREMENTS" have not been met.
But tell me how you feel about this one because it seems rather dramatic. It would take another round of global massive buying to make this squeeze back up.
I'm leaving this as a 'NEUTRAL' because the buy signal hasn't been triggered yet. Time will tell.

Note - Terminals are rare, but when they set-up and work, they pay for all of the small losers along the way. Keep that in mind - Terminals are a LOW PROBABILITY event, with HIGH PAYOFF. Every trading method has different risk/reward/probability parameters. Questions?
