E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average

September E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average futures are trading higher at the mid-session, helped by a surge in the energy sector, which dampened fears of a near-term recession. Energy shares rose sharply after the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) reported a much larger than expected weekly drawdown. The news offset some of the bearishness created by an earlier inversion of the 2-year/10-year U.S. Treasury yield curve, a signal that is often used to predict recessions.

At 15:33 GMT, September E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average futures are trading 25950, up 206 or +0.78%.

Bullish Scenario

Taking out 26012 and sustaining the rally will indicate the buying is getting stronger. This should trigger a fast move into the minor top at 26069.

A move through 26069 will change the minor trend to up. This could trigger a rally into the short-term 50% level at 26215. Overtaking this level could lead to a surge into the main top at 26375, followed by a main top at 26408 and the short-term Fibonacci level at 26494.
