Based on yesterday’s closing price reversal bottom and today’s confirmation, the direction of the December E-mini NASDAQ-100 Index is likely to be determined by trader reaction to 6714.50.

Bullish Scenario

A sustained move over 6714.50 will indicate the presence of buyers. If this creates enough upside momentum then look for the rally to extend into 6822.75. This is a potential trigger point for an acceleration into a short-term Fibonacci level at 6908.50.

Since the main trend is down, look for sellers on the first test of 6822.75 and 6908.50.

Bearish Scenario

A sustained move under 6714.50 will signal the presence of sellers. This could lead to a retracement of the first rally from 6535.25. The first downside target is 6609.00, followed by the minor bottom at 6525.25.
