Daily Technical Forecast

Based on the early price action and the current price at 7473.75, the direction of the June E-mini NASDAQ-100 Index the rest of the session is likely to be determined by trader reaction to the downtrending Gann angle at 7497.00.

Bearish Scenario

A sustained move under 7497.00 will indicate the presence of sellers. If this creates enough downside momentum then look for the selling to possibly extend into the 50% level at 7410.25, followed closely by the steep uptrending Gann angle at 7389.25.

This angle, moving up at a rate of 64 points per day, has been guiding the market higher since June 3. Taking it out will put the market in a weak position with the next targets an intermediate Fibonacci level at 7473.75 and a downtrending Gann angle at 7351.75. If this angle fails then look for a spike into the intermediate 50% level at 7291.00.

Bullish Scenario

A sustained move over 7497.00 will signal the presence of buyers. The next target is the main Fibonacci level at 7521.00. Overtaking this level late in the session could trigger a short-covering rally with potential targets 7600.75, 7615.75 and 7641.00.
