E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average

September E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average futures are trading higher shortly after the opening on Monday. Most of the move took place in the pre-market session due to strong rallies in Asia and Europe. It looks like U.S. investors are a little reluctant to buy strength in the wake of recent volatility.

At 14:46 GMT, September E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average futures are at 26131, up 224 or +0.87%.

The early rally is being underpinned by an easing of worries over a U.S. recession. Traders are also reacting to reports of additional stimulus plans by the Chinese government and the European Central Bank (ECB).
