Daily Technical Forecast

Based on the early price action, the direction of the December E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average futures contract is likely to be determined by trader reaction to the main Fibonacci level at 24824.

A sustained move over 24824 will indicate the presence of buyers. The next upside targets are a pair of downtrending Gann angles at 24918 and 25077. Since the trend is down we could see sellers on the first test of this angles.

Overcoming 25077 will indicate the buying is getting stronger. This could lead to a test of the main 50% level at 25233. Crossing to the strong side of the 50% level will shift the bias to the upside, crossing 25338 will change the minor trend to up.

A sustained move under 24824 will signal the presence of sellers. This could trigger a re-test of yesterday’s low at 24511. The daily chart is wide open under this level with the June 28 bottom at 24000 the first major downside target.

The main bottom at 24000 is also a trigger point for an acceleration into 23580 and 23500.
