Daily Technical Forecast
Based on the early price action, the direction of the June E-mini NASDAQ-100 index into the close is likely to be determined by trader reaction to the uptrending Gann angle at 7660.00.
Overcoming and sustaining a rally over 7660.00 will indicate the presence of buyers. If this move creates enough upside momentum then look for a surge to the upside with the next target the October 3, 2018 main top at 7767.00.
The inability to overcome 7660.00 will indicate the buying is getting weaker, or the selling is getting stronger. If this generates enough downside momentum then look for a potential test of the minor bottom at 7575.75.
Taking out 7575.75 will change the minor trend to down, but it could also trigger an acceleration to the downside with the next target a support cluster at 7470.50 to 7468.00.
