Based on the early price action and the current price at 3093.75, the direction of the December E-mini S&P 500 Index into the close on Wednesday is likely to be determined by trader reaction to the uptrending Gann angle at 3092.25.
A sustained move over 3092.25 will indicate the presence of buyers. If this creates enough upside momentum then look for buyers to attempt a breakout over the minor top at 3102.00.

If support fails at 3082.50 then look for a break into the uptrending Gann angle at 3073.75. A failure at this price could trigger a further decline into the minor bottom at 3063.00 and another pivot at 3061.00.
The 50% level at 3061.00 is a potential trigger point for an acceleration to the downside.
