Daily Swing Chart Technical Forecast
The direction of the December E-mini Dow into the close on Tuesday is likely to be determined by trader reaction to 36123.
A sustained move over 36123 will indicate the presence of buyers. If this move can break in the buyers, we could see a retest of 36446 over the next 1-2 days. This price is a potential trigger point for an upside breakout.
A sustained move under 36123 will signal the presence of sellers. If this move creates enough downside momentum then look for a drive into the pivot at 35915.
Since the main trend is up, buyers could come in on the first test of this level. Taking it out, however, with strong selling volume could trigger an acceleration into 35383, followed closely by 35215.
