Daily Technical Forecast

Based on the early trade, the direction of the September E-mini S&P 500 Index today is likely to be determined by trader reaction to the short-term 50% level at 2766.00 and the downtrending Gann angle at 2768.00.

A sustained move under 2766.00 will indicate the presence of sellers. This could lead to a retest of the uptrending Gann angle at 2751.25. This angle stopped the selling earlier today, and on Tuesday and Thursday.

If 2766.00 fails as support then look for an acceleration into the support cluster at 2737.50 to 2735.75. Look for a technical bounce on the first test of this zone. If it fails then look out to the downside.

Overcoming and sustaining a rally over 2768.00 will signal the presence of buyers. This could trigger an acceleration to the upside with the first target angle dropping in at 2782.00. The next resistance angle comes in at 2789.00. This is the last potential resistance angle before the 2796.00 main top.

Basically, the index strengthens over 2768.00, and starts to weaken under 2765.75.
