Blue chips stocks are inching higher shortly before the cash market opening. Traders seem to be ignoring, for the time being, tensions over U.S.-China trade negotiations and worries about a slowing global economy. Earlier in the day, Dow components Pfizer and 3 M both reported better-than-expected earnings and revenue. However, Pfizer issued weather-than-expected guidance for 2019 and 3M lowered its 2019 earnings guidance. Traders are also waiting for earnings reports from companies like Apple, Amgen and eBay.

At 1259 GMT, March E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average futures are trading 24531, up 56 or +0.23%.

Daily Technical Forecast

Based on the early price action, the direction of the March E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average on Tuesday is likely to be determined by trader reaction to the uptrending Gann angle at 24268.

Bullish Scenario

A sustained move over 24268 will indicate the presence of buyers. If this move creates enough upside momentum then look for a move into another uptrending Gann angle at 24611. Overtaking this angle will indicate the buying is getting stronger. This could trigger a rally into the minor top at 24830 and the main top at 24860, followed by the resistance cluster at 24890 to 24919.

The trigger point for an acceleration to the upside is 24919. The next resistance angle drops in at 25512.

Bearish Scenario

A failure to hold 24268 will be the first sign of weakness. Taking out 24234 will indicate the selling is getting stronger. This could trigger a break through the minor bottom at 24216 and an acceleration to the downside with the next major target coming in at 23697.
