Daily Swing Chart Technical Forecast

Based on the early price action, the direction of the index into the close is likely to be determined by trader reaction to the major 50% level at 2707.75.

A sustained move over 2707.75 will signal the presence of buyers. If this move can generate enough upside momentum, we’re looking at a possible extension of the rally into the main Fibonacci level at 2749.25.

A sustained move under 2707.75 will indicate the presence of sellers. This could trigger a break into the next 50% level at 2679.50.

The 50% level at 2679.50 is the trigger point for a potential acceleration to the downside with 2635.25 the next likely downside target.

Watch the price action and read the order flow at 2707.75 all session. Trader reaction to this level will tell us if the bulls are still in control, or if the selling is greater than the buying at current price levels.
