Daily Swing Chart Technical Analysis
The main trend is up according to the daily swing chart. However, momentum has been trending lower since the formation of the closing price reversal top on May 28.
The market is in no position to change the main trend to down. This will occur if 22704 fails as support. Meanwhile a trade through 25794 will negate the closing price reversal top and signal a resumption of the uptrend.
The minor trend is also up. However, a trade through the new minor bottom at 24991 will change the minor trend to down. This will also shift momentum to the downside.
The main range is 29506 to 18086. Its retracement zone at 25144 to 23796 is major support. It is also controlling the longer-term direction of the Dow.
The minor range is 24076 to 25794. Its 50% level at 24935 is support.
Daily Swing Chart Technical Forecast
Based on the early price action, the direction of the June E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average on Monday is likely to be determined by trader reaction to 24991.
A sustained move over 24991 will indicate the presence of buyers. Overtaking the Fibonacci level at 25144 will indicate the buying is getting stronger. If this move can create enough upside momentum then look for buyers to make a run at 25794 over the near-term.
A break under 25144 will be the first sign of weakness. However, the most damage to the downside will take place when 24935 is taken out. This move can trigger an acceleration to the downside with the nearest downside targets a cluster of levels at 24076, 23796 and 23571.
