Daily Swing Chart Technical Forecast
Based on the early trade and the current price at 26983, the direction of the December E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average the rest of the session on Tuesday is likely to be determined by trader reaction to the minor pivot at 26999.
A sustained move over 26999 will indicate the presence of buyers. The next upside target is the minor top at 27112. Taking out the minor top will indicate the buying is getting stronger. This will shift momentum to the upside and put the Dow in a position to challenge the four main tops at 27262, 27312, 27338 and 27375.
A sustained move under 26999 will signal the presence of sellers. If this move generates enough downside momentum then look for a potential acceleration into last week’s low at 26686. This is the last potential support before the main Fibonacci target at 26473.
