Heading into the final hour of trading today, the e-SPU appears to have pivoted off of a marginal new high at 1248.50 and is heading for another visit of this AM's low at 1242.25 (as we were expecting). If such a scenario unfolds during the final hour of trading, then a break below 1242.25 should trigger additional weakness that will carry through for most of Thursday, ahead of Fri.'s Employment Report. As of this moment, we need to see the e-SPU break 1242.25 to confirm that a significant micro peak has been established. Otherwise, there will be more noise and voliatility in and around 1246-1249.
