SPIKE WITH 2ND PEAK
Started @ 105.54

26 ticks (3x bottom)

Notes: Moderate gain in supply and small offset of the forecast caused a relatively meager and controlled downward spike. No SMAs or Pivots were crossed. After the initial spike, the market recovered most of the dip, then fell for a incremental 2nd Peak of 3 more ticks. Then it went sideways for 20 min before climbing and fighting through the 50 and 100 SMAs for the reversal.
