Daily Swing Chart Technical Forecast
Based on the early price action, the direction of the September E-mini S&P 500 Index will be determined by trader reaction to 2773.00 and 2765.75.
A sustained move over 2773.00 will indicate the presence of buyers. If this move generates enough upside momentum, we could see a drive toward 2796.00.
A sustained move under 2773.00 will indicate weak buying. A move under 2765.75 will indicate strong selling. This could drive the index back into 2755.25. This price is a potential trigger point for an acceleration into 2737.50 to 2735.75.
If 2735.75 fails then look for the selling to extend into 2723.75 then 2713.75. The latter is the trigger point for a steep sell-off.
Basically, look for an upside bias to develop on a sustained move over 2773.00 and for a downside bias to develop on a sustained move under 2765.75.
