Daily Swing Chart Technical Forecast

Based on the early price action

Bullish Scenario

A sustained move over 3308.75 will indicate the presence of buyers. If this move creates enough upside momentum over the near-term then we could see a drive into the short-term retracement zone at 3387.25 to 3431.75. Inside this zone is the main top at 3418.50. A trade through this level will change the main trend to up.

Bearish Scenario

A sustained move under 3308.75 will signal the presence of sellers. If this move creates enough downside momentum then look for the selling to possibly extend into the main 50% level at 3246.25.
