Some of the early selling pressure was fueled by data that confirmed the economy suffered its steepest contraction since the Great Depression in the second quarter. Adding to the gloom was an initial claims report that showed another rise in the latest week and a resurgence in coronavirus cases throughout the United States.

After the close, Dow component Apple Inc reports quarterly earnings.

Daily Swing Chart Technical Forecast

Based on the early price action and the current price at 26122, the direction of the September E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average into the close is likely to be determined by trader reaction to the 50% level at 25938 and the Fibonacci level at 26298.

Bearish Scenario

A sustained move under 25938 will indicate the presence of sellers. Taking out the low at 25881 and the minor bottom at 25874 will indicate the selling pressure is getting stronger. This could trigger an acceleration to the downside with the next targets a main bottom at 25293 and another major 50% level at 25053.

Bullish Scenario

A sustained move over 26298 will signal the presence of buyers. This could lead to a labored rally with potential targets coming in at 26469 and 26608. Taking out the latter could trigger an acceleration to the upside.
