Taking out 23558 will indicate the presence of buyers. This level is a potential trigger point for an acceleration to the upside. The daily chart indicates there is plenty of room to the upside with the next target angle coming in at 23836. Profit-takers could come in on a test of this angle. Taking out this angle with conviction, however, could trigger another acceleration to the upside with the next major downtrending Gann angle coming in at 24348.
A sustained move under 23558 will signal the presence of sellers. If this creates enough downside momentum then look for a test of the uptrending Gann angle at 23244. Crossing to the weak side of this angle will put the index in a bearish position. This should lead to a quick break into the 50% level at 23156.
The 50% level at 23156 is the trigger point for an acceleration to the downside with the next target an uptrending Gann angle at 22819. This is followed by another uptrending Gann angle at 22691 and the main bottom at 22563.
