Daily Technical Forecast
The early price action indicates the direction of the September E-mini S&P 500 Index the rest of the session is likely to be determined by trader reaction to a price cluster at 26,215 to 26,226.
A sustained move over 26,226 will indicate the presence of buyers. The first target is the intraday high at 26,408 followed by the short-term Fibonacci level at 26,494. This level is a potential trigger point for an acceleration into the downtrending Gann angle at 26,725.
A sustained move under 26,215 will signal the presence of sellers. This could trigger a quick sell-off into the main 50% level at 26,012.
Crossing to the weak side of 26,012 could trigger a further break into the intraday low at 25,750 and the main Fibonacci level at 25,685. This is a potential trigger point for an acceleration into the uptrending Gann angle at 25,426.
