Daily Technical Forecast
Based on the current price at 2907.75 and the early price action, the direction of the December E-mini S&P 500 Index is likely to be determined by trader reaction to the downtrending Gann angle at 2908.75.
A sustained move over 2908.75 will indicate the presence of buyers. The first upside target is a downtrending Gann angle at 2915.25. This is followed by yesterday’s high at 2917.75.
Taking out 2917.75 will signal a resumption of the uptrend. If this move creates enough upside momentum then buyers may take a run at 2921.75, the contract high.
A sustained move under 2908.75 will signal the presence of sellers. This could lead to a quick test of a pair of uptrending Gann angles at 2899.00 and 2897.50. Look for a technical bounce on the first tests of these angles.
Watch for an acceleration to the downside if 2897.50 fails as support. This could trigger a break into a series of levels at 2893.50, 2888.00 and an uptrending Gann angle at 2883.50.
