Holding several longs with an average entry of 48.96 and a primary target of 52.354. If prices can decidedly break this then I am looking for a secondary target of 53.169... It would seem highly unlikely that prices will run any higher than this based on the upcoming FOMC rate hike announcement on December 14th, but stranger things have happened. If prices surpass the secondary target then they could run for a while as the next tested resistance/support level is not until the 54-55.x range last seen in 2015.
