Technically, the main trend is up. The main trend turns to down on a break through the last swing bottom at 891.10. An uptrending Gann angle at 907.10 is providing support, having been tested successfully several times over the past two weeks.

A failure to hold the uptrending Gann angle will be a sign of weakness. This should put pressure on the market. Based on the short-term range of 891.10 to 913.70, a key pivot price has formed at 902.40. A test of this price could draw the attention of buyers, but a move under it will probably be a strong sign that prices are headed lower.
