Daily Swing Chart Technical Forecast
The direction of the September E-mini NASDAQ-100 Index on Tuesday is likely to be determined by trader reaction to 14117.25.
A sustained move over 14117.25 will indicate the presence of buyers. Taking out the intraday high at 14155.25 will indicate the buying is getting stronger. This could trigger an acceleration to the upside if the buying volume is strong enough.
A sustained move under 14117.25 will signal the presence of sellers. If this move creates enough downside momentum then look for the selling to possibly extend into the first pivot at 13935.75. Since the main trend is up, buyers could show up on the first test of this level.
If 13935.75 fails as support then look for the selling to possibly extend into the next pivot at 13803.25.
