Daily Technical Forecast
Based on the early price action and the current price at 7788.00, the direction of the September E-mini NASDAQ-100 Index the rest of the session on Thursday is likely to be determined by trader reaction to the short-term Fibonacci level at 7735.75.
A sustained move over 7735.75 will indicate the presence of buyers. The first targets are a pair of Gann angles at 7801.25 and 7811.75. Traders took out this area earlier in the session, but the rally stalled at 7839.75. Taking out this level will indicate the buying is getting stronger. This could trigger a rally into the next downtrending Gann angle at 7931.75.
The inability to overcome 7801.25 to 7811.75 will indicate some sellers. However, the trigger point for an acceleration to the downside is the short-term Fibonacci level at 7735.75. Taking out this level could drive the index into the short-term 50% level at 7638.00, followed by an uptrending Gann angle at 7577.25.
