Daily Technical Forecast
Based on the early price action and the current price at 3007.75, 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 3006.50.
A sustained move over 3006.50 will indicate the presence of buyers. If this is able to generate enough upside momentum then look for a possible retest of the uptrending Gann angle at 3025.50. Overtaking this angle will put the index in a strong position with 3029.50 the next likely upside target.
A sustained move under 3006.50 will signal the presence of sellers. This could trigger a quick break into a support cluster at 2999.50, followed by an uptrending Gann angle at 2997.50.
If 2997.50 fails then look for the selling to possibly extend into the short-term Fibonacci level at 2992.50. This is another trigger point for a break into an uptrending Gann angle at 2983.50.
