E-mini NASDAQ-100 Index (NQ) Futures Technical Analysis – July 11, 2018 Forecast

Based on the early price action, the direction of the September E-mini NASDAQ-100 Index today is likely to be determined by trader reaction to the steep uptrending Gann angle at 7212.00. This angle held earlier as support. Basically, we’re looking for an upside bias to develop on a sustained move over 7254.50 and for a downside bias to develop on a sustained move under 7212.00. Holding between these two numbers will indicate investor indecision.

September E-mini NASDAQ-100 Index futures are called lower shortly before the cash market opening. The early selling pressure is a knee-jerk reaction to the threat of new tariffs on China by the Trump Administration and a possible retaliation from China.

Daily Technical Forecast

Based on the early price action, the direction of the September E-mini NASDAQ-100 Index today is likely to be determined by trader reaction to the steep uptrending Gann angle at 7212.00. This angle held earlier as support.

A sustained move over 7212.00 will indicate the presence of buyers. This could lead to a test of the downtrending Gann angle at 7254.50. Overtaking 7254.50 will indicate the buying is getting stronger. This could trigger a surge into downtrending Gann angles at 7306.50 and 7332.00. The latter is the last potential resistance angle before the 7335.50 main top.

A sustained move under 7212.00 will signal the presence of sellers. This is a potential trigger point for an acceleration to the downside with the first target a 50% level at 7145.75, followed by a support cluster at 7107.00 to 7101.00.

Basically, we’re looking for an upside bias to develop on a sustained move over 7254.50 and for a downside bias to develop on a sustained move under 7212.00. Holding between these two numbers will indicate investor indecision.
