E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average (YM) Futures Technical Analysis – Reaction to 27339 Sets Tone into CloseThe direction of the December Dow Jones Industrial Average into the close is likely to be determined by trader reaction to 27339.
December E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average futures are trading nearly 800 points lower at the mid-session on Monday after investors threw in the towel on any hopes of a fiscal stimulus deal before the election and as a surge in coronavirus infections threatened to derail the economic recovery.
Optimism dimmed earlier today that the White House and Republicans could strike a stimulus deal with the Democrats before the election. White House chief of staff Mark Meadows and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in separate interviews accused each other of moving the goalposts on stimulus talks. White House economic advisor Larry Kudlow also told CNBC’s “Squawk Box” that talks had slowed down, but noted they are still ongoing.
