Daily Technical Forecast

Based on the early price action, the first downside target is the uptrending Gann angle at 2777.00. This is followed closely by the short-term 50% level at 2774.25. Counter-trend buyers could come in on a test of this area.

If 2774.50 fails then look for the selling to extend into the next support cluster at 2767.50 to 2763.75. The latter is a potential trigger point for an acceleration into 2750.25 to 2748.75.

On the upside, the first target is 2799.00, followed by 2816.75. Overtaking the latter will put the market in a bullish position.
