Daily Technical Forecast
Based on the early price action, the direction of the December E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average futures contract on Tuesday is likely to be determined by trader reaction to the short-term pivot at 26584.
A sustained move over 26584 will indicate the presence of buyers. Holding above the uptrending Gann angle at 26631 will indicate the buying is getting stronger. This could drive the Dow into a downtrending Gann angle at 26708. This is followed by another downtrending Gann angle at 26764. This is the last potential resistance angle before the 26820 main top.
A sustained move under 26584 will signal the presence of sellers. The daily chart is wide open under this level so increased selling pressure could drive the Dow into the 50% level at 26406. This is followed by a support cluster at 26311 to 26302.
Basically, look for an upside bias to develop on a sustained move over 26631 and for a downside bias to develop on a sustained move under 26584.
