The main range is 3397.75 to 2174.00. Its retracement zone at 2930.25 to 2785.75 is controlling the longer-term direction of the index. Holding above this zone will continue to give the market a solid upside bias. The nearest support is the main Fibonacci level at 2930.25.


Daily Swing Chart Technical Forecast

The new minor range is 2903.75 to 3065.50. Its 50% level at 2984.50 is controlling the direction of the index on Friday.

Bullish Scenario

A sustained move over 2984.50 will indicate the presence of buyers. If this creates enough upside momentum then look for a retest of yesterday’s high at 3065.50. This is a potential trigger point for an acceleration to the upside.

Bearish Scenario

A sustained move under 2984.50 will signal the presence of sellers. This could trigger an acceleration to the downside with 2930.25 to 2903.75 the best downside target.

The main bottom at 2903.75 is a potential trigger point for an even stronger break with 2785.75 to 2765.50 the next target zone.
