Daily Technical Forecast
Based on the early price action and the current price at 29357, the direction of the March E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average the rest of the session on Wednesday is likely to be determined by trader reaction to the downtrending Gann angle at 29347.
A sustained move over 29347 will indicate the presence of buyers. This could trigger a rally into the next downtrending Gann angle at 29411. This is the last potential resistance angle before the 29475 main top. Taking out this level could trigger an acceleration to the upside.
A sustained move under 29347 will signal the presence of sellers. This could lead to a test of the next downtrending Gann angle at 29219.
If 29219 fails as support then look for the selling to possibly extend into the pivot at 29163, followed closely by an uptrending Gann angle at 29129. This is a potential trigger point for an acceleration to the downside.
