Daily Swing Chart Technical Forecast
The early price action on Tuesday indicates that investors are going to try to take out the minor Fibonacci level at 27547. This should trigger a surge into the short-term 50% level at 27729. Since the main trend is down, sellers are likely to come in on a test of this level.
Overtaking 27729 could create the upside momentum needed to challenge the short-term Fibonacci level at 28040, this is followed closely by the main top at 28251.
A break under 27329 will indicate the presence of sellers. This could trigger a break to about 26993. Counter-trend buyers may step in on a test of this level in an effort to create a secondary higher bottom. If 26993 fails as support then look for the selling to possibly extend into the main 50% level at 26714.
