Daily Technical Forecast

The index is currently trading inside a pair of steep uptrending Gann angles at 7801.00 and 7766.25. Trader reaction to these angles will determine the direction of the market the rest of the session.

Bullish Scenario

A sustained move over 7801.00 will indicate the buying is getting stronger. This could lead to a test of the downtrending Gann angle at 7832.75. This is the last potential resistance angle before the 7910.75 main top. It’s also the trigger point for an acceleration to the upside.

Bearish Scenario

A sustained move under 7766.25 will signal the presence of sellers. This could lead to a test of the downtrending Gann angle at 7754.75.

The daily chart starts to open up to the downside under 7754.75. If the selling pressure increases, it could trigger a potential break into a short-term uptrending Gann angle at 7606.25.

Overview

The market has been following both angles higher since June 13. It’s possible that traders could continue to straddle these angles all session while moving higher. So if you’re buying or selling breakout off of these angles, make sure you have buying and selling volume to back you up.
