Daily Swing Chart Technical Forecast
The early price action suggests the tone of the market on Thursday is likely to be determined by trader reaction to the minor 50% level at 26697.
A sustained move over 26697 will indicate the presence of buyers. If this is able to generate enough upside momentum then we could see a test of the last main top at 27063. Sellers could come in on the first test of this level, but taking it out could trigger an acceleration to the upside with the June 9 main top at 27466 the next likely upside target.
A sustained move under 26697 will signal the presence of sellers. This could trigger a break into the minor bottom at 26426. If this fails then look for the selling to possibly extend into the main bottom at 26330, followed by the short-term Fibonacci level at 26298.
The Fib level at 26298 is a potential trigger point for an acceleration to the downside with the next likely targets the short-term 50% level at 25938 and another minor bottom at 25874.
