Based on the early price action and the current price at 26333, the direction of the September E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average in the close on Wednesday is likely to be determined by trader reaction to the downtrending Gann angle at 26245.
A sustained move over 26245 will indicate the presence of buyers. If it continues to generate enough upside momentum then look for a surge into the short-term Fibonacci level at 26494. This is followed closely by the minor top at 26559. This is a potential trigger point for an acceleration to the upside with the next target angle coming in at 26821.

The trigger point for an acceleration to the downside is 26012.
