Daily Technical Forecast

Based on the early price action and the current price at 3011.25, the direction of the September E-mini S&P 500 Index the rest of the session is likely to be determined by trader reaction to the uptrending Gann angle at 3011.50.

Bullish Scenario

A sustained move over 3011.50 will indicate the presence of buyers. If this move creates enough upside momentum then buyers may take a run at the uptrending Gann angle target at 3031.50. Overtaking this angle will put the index in an extremely bullish position.

Bearish Scenario

A sustained move under 3011.50 will signal the presence of sellers. The first target is an uptrending Gann angle at 3002.50. Crossing to the weak side of this angle will indicate the selling pressure is getting stronger. This could trigger a break into the uptrending Gann angle at 2987.50.

Look for a technical bounce on the first test of 2987.50. If it fails then look for the selling to extend into the next uptrending Gann angle at 2975.50.

Overview

A close below 3004.00 will form a closing price reversal top. If confirmed on Monday, this could trigger the start of a 2 to 3 day correction.
