UST Yields are crushed on the NFP miss, but since the Dollar is crushed this has enabled WTI to flourish and we can see SPX Algos are linked to oil today.

In the pre-US Cash session price rotates +579 bps premium verse the point of control at 2048 in the upper bi modal. The market has auctioned +1000bps in a post-Brexit vote era on declining participants. Advertisements of the auction have been in attempt by central banks, but so far the average volume line does not reflect an abundance of new entrees. Price is likely to oscillate from 2166.7 to 2182 as the balance matures. Then use the balance’s extremes for hints of a directional imbalance.

Our fear is the premium verse the point of control has been decreasing in a lower high formation. This may signal the balance nears maturity thus indicating a directional imbalance is near. Driver of markets today will be how markets digest the NFP data dump.
