June E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average futures finished sharply lower with the selling driven by concerns over an economic slowdown. Early in the week, the price action was driven by a steep drop in Treasury yields that telegraphed to investors that the Fed was likely to cut rate later in the year. The second wave of selling pressure came about after President Trump vowed to impose a 5% tariff on Mexican imports starting on June 10. This caused instability and additional uncertainty for traders.
Last week, June E-mini Dow Jones industrial Average futures settled at 24820, down 800 or -3.22%.

Weekly Technical Forecast
Based on Friday’s close at 24820 and the momentum into the close, the direction of the June E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average this week is likely to be determined by trader reaction to the Fibonacci level at 24911.
A sustained move under 24911 will indicate the presence of sellers. The first downside target is an uptrending Gann angle at 24494. Look for a technical bounce on the first test of this angle.
If 24494 fails then look for the selling to extend into the two 50% levels at 24269 to 24122. This area is extremely important to the structure of the market. Watch for buyers to come in on a test of this area.
If 24122 fails and selling volume increases then look for an acceleration to the downside with the next target a Fibonacci level at 23515.
A sustained move over 24911 will signal the return of buyers. The first upside target is a downtrending Gann angle at 25158. This angle has been guiding the Dow lower for six weeks. It is a potential trigger point for an acceleration to the upside with the next target angle coming in at 25926.
