The main trend is down according to the daily swing chart. A trade through 4094.25 will reaffirm the downtrend, while a move through 4509.00 will change the main trend to up.

The minor trend is also down. A trade through 4303.50 will change the minor trend to up and shift momentum to the upside.

Daily Swing Chart Technical Forecast

The direction of the June E-mini S&P 500 Index on Monday is likely to be determined by trader reaction to 4127.50.

Bearish Scenario

A sustained move under 4127.50 will indicate the presence of sellers. Taking out the intraday low at 4165.75 will be the first signal of increasing selling pressure. A move through the main bottom at 4094.25 will reaffirm the downtrend. This could trigger an acceleration into the May 12, 2021 main bottom at 4020.50.

Bullish Scenario

A sustained move over 4127.50 will signal the presence of buyers. If this creates enough upside momentum then look for a surge into the pivot at 4200.75.

Sellers could come in on the first test of 4200.75, but overtaking it could trigger an acceleration into the resistance cluster at 4299.25 to 4303.50.
