A sustained move over 24824 will indicate the presence of buyers. This could lead to a quick move into the minor 50% level at 24877.
The pivot at 24877 is also a trigger point for an acceleration into a pair of 50% levels at 25119 and 25233. This is followed by the minor top at 25338.
Taking out 25338 will change the minor trend to up and shift momentum to the upside. It’s also the trigger point for an acceleration to the upside with the major 50% level at 25691 the next target.
A sustained move under 24824 will signal the presence of sellers. The daily chart is open until 24415. Taking out this level will signal a resumption of the downtrend with the June 28 bottom at 24000 the next likely downside target.
