Based on the early price action, the direction of the December E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average is likely to be determined by trader reaction to the price cluster at 24534 to 24547.

A sustained move over 24547 will indicate the presence of buyers. The next upside target is a downtrending Gann angle at 24693. This is a potential trigger point for an acceleration to the upside with the next targets lined up at 24824, 24966 and 25007.

A sustained move under 24534 will signal the presence of sellers. The daily chart is wide open under this level if there is enough downside momentum. The first target is yesterday’s low at 24086, followed by the June 28 main bottom at 24000.

Today’s inside move suggests investor indecision and impending volatility. Any rally is likely to be labored until the market can clear the series of potential resistance levels. The key to shifting momentum to the upside will be the buying volume on a move through 25007.
