Daily Technical Forecast

Based on the early price action, the direction of the September E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average futures contract is likely to be determined by trader reaction to the Fibonacci level at 24868.

A sustained move over 24868 will indicate the presence of buyers. If this move generates enough upside momentum then look for the rally to extend into 24937. Taking out this minor top could drive the Dow into a downtrending Gann angle at 25066. This angle is likely to act like resistance on the first test then a trigger point for a potential breakout if the buying volume continues to strengthen.

A sustained move under 24868 will signal the presence of sellers. This could lead to a retest of the short-term pivot at 24774, followed by a support cluster at 24714 to 24698. This area provided support earlier today.

If 24698 fails as support, we could see the selling extend into 24611 then 24554. The Dow has to hold 24554 or momentum will shift to the downside and selling pressure could increase.
