E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average (YM) Futures Technical Analysis – August 26, 2019 ForecastBased on the early price action and the current price at 25835, the direction of the September E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average is likely to be determined by trader reaction to the 50% level at 26012 and the 61.8% level at 25685.
September E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average futures are trading higher shortly before the cash market opening. The market is rebounding from early session weakness after a positive comment from President Trump eased tensions over U.S.-China trade relations. Trump said China is willing to resume trade talk negotiations. This was enough to trigger an impressive intraday rally that erased earlier losses.
At 10:50 GMT, September E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average futures are trading 25835, up 169 or +0.66%.
Traders have to be careful reading into Trump’s comments because he knows he can move the market higher by putting a positive spin on U.S.-China trade relations. The rally could start to fade if China doesn’t confirm his remarks. On the other hand, the Dow could spike higher if China validates that trade talks are back on.
