Daily Swing Chart Technical Analysis
The main trend is up according to the daily swing chart. It was confirmed earlier in the session when buyers took out Friday’s high at 4364.00. A trade through 4126.75 will change the main trend to down.
The minor trend is also up. A trade through 4279.25 will change the minor trend to down. This is followed closely by another minor bottom at 4269.25.
The minor range is 4269.25 to 4365.25. Its 50% level at 4317.25 is the nearest support. This level will move up as the index moves higher.
The short-term range is 4126.75 to 4365.25. If the minor trend changes to down then its pivot at 4246.00 will become the next potential support level.
Daily Swing Chart Technical Forecast
The early price action suggests the direction of the September E-mini S&P 500 Index on Monday will be determined by trader reaction to 4360.00.
A sustained move over 4360.00 will indicate the presence of buyers. The first upside target is 4365.25. Taking out this level could trigger an acceleration to the upside.
A sustained move under 4360.00 will signal the presence of sellers. If this move creates enough downside momentum then look for sellers to possibly drive the index into the pivot at 4317.25.
A close under 4360.00 will form a potentially bearish closing price reversal top. If confirmed, we could see a 2 to 3 day correction but not necessarily a change in trend.
