Forecast:  106.4
Actual: 104.4
Previous Revision: n/a
Started @ 1.2993
1st Peak @ 1.2959 – 0401 (1 min)
34 ticks

Reversal to 1.3022 – 0450 (50 min)
63 ticks

Notes:  The reading came in 2 points below the forecast to disappoint.  The report came a few sec late and caused a short spike of 34 ticks about 11 sec into the :01 bar. With JOBB, you would have filled short at about 1.2986 with 2 ticks of slippage.  Then it would have continued to step lower to bottom at 1.2959 33 sec into the bar while eclipsing the S2 Mid Pivot.  That would be a great target to exit with 20+ ticks.  Then it reversed to initially hit the 13 SMA, then struggled with the 50 SMA, but made quick work of the 100 / 200 SMAs and the PP Pivot to extend the HOD by 6 ticks.  After that, the HOD held for an hour as it drifted sideways between the PP Pivot and the HOD, then achieved 16 more ticks about 2 hrs after the report.
