Daily Technical Forecast
Based on the early price action, the direction of the March E-mini S&P 500 index on Thursday is likely to be determined by trader reaction to the short-term 50% level at 25726.
A sustained move over 25726 will indicate the presence of buyers. The first target is a downtrending Gann angle at 25822. Sellers could come in on the first test of this angle. Overcoming this angle should lead to a test of the Fibonacci level at 25847.
Look for a technical bounce on the first test of 25847. Overtaking it, however, could trigger an acceleration to the upside with the next target angle coming in at 26030.
A sustained move under 25726 will signal the presence of sellers. This could lead to a test of an uptrending Gann angle at 25598. If this fails then look for the selling to extend into the 50% level at 25550.
The 50% level is the trigger point for an acceleration to the downside with the next targets 25461 and 25388.
