E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average (YM) Futures Technical Analysis – Close Under 28008 Forms Closing Price Reversal TopBased on the early price action and the current price at 27888, the direction of the December E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average the rest of the session on Tuesday is likely to be determined by trader reaction to Monday’s close at 28008.
December E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average futures are trading lower as we approach the mid-session on Tuesday. Earlier in the session, the Dow hit a record high, but the buying quickly evaporated as losses in Dow component Home Depot outweighed a jump in Boeing shares.
Home Depot shares dropped nearly 5% after disappointing some-store sales, a key metric for retailers, overshadowed better-than-expected earnings. The stock’s decline shaved off 80 points from the Dow. Boeing shares rose 0.4% after wrangling up 50 orders for the embattled 737 Max jet at the Dubai Air Show.
The price action has produced an outside trading range, putting the Dow in a position to post a potentially bearish closing price reversal top on a close under Monday’s close at 28008.
At 16:17 GMT, December E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average futures are trading 27888, down 118 or -0.42%.
