Daily Swing Chart Technical Forecast

Based on the early price action, the direction of the December E-mini NASDAQ-100 Index futures contract is likely to be determined by trader reaction to the main 50% level at 6822.75.

Bullish Scenario

A sustained move over 6822.75 will indicate the presence of buyers. If this generates enough upside momentum then look for a test of the short-term 50% level at 6974.50. Overtaking this level will indicate the buying is getting stronger with the next targets coming in at 7067.50 and 7154.75.

Bearish Scenario

A sustained move under 6822.75 will tell a different story. This is a potential trigger point for the start of a steep break. Daily chart targets include a major Fibonacci level at 6609.00 and the main bottom at 6580.50.
