Daily Swing Chart Technical forecast
Today’s price action suggests the selling is greater than the buying at current price levels. Additionally, a secondary lower top may be forming more than a week after the bearish closing price reversal top was formed on April 30 at 24792.
If the early selling pressure continues then look for a break into the main 50% level at 23796, followed closely by the Fibonacci level at 23571. Trader reaction to these two levels will set the tone for the rest of the session.
Holding the 50% level at 23796 will indicate the return of buyers. If this creates enough upside momentum then look for a possible retest of the intraday high at 24471.
Taking out 24471 will indicate the buying is getting stronger with potential targets coming in at 24792 and 25144.
A failure to hold 23796 will be a sign of weakness. This should lead to a test of 23571. If this level fails then look for the selling to possibly extend into the minor bottom at 23428, followed closely by the main bottom at 23208.
