June E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average futures are trading flat shortly after the cash market opening. The limited movement is being fueled by a clash between investors betting on a successful reopening of the economy and those concerned about a resurgence in coronavirus cases and further damage to the economy.
At 14:11 GMT, June E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average futures are at 23738, down 23 or -0.10%.
Traders showed limited reaction to a report from ADP and Moody’s Analytics that showed private payrolls were cut by 20.2 million last month. Although the report was devastating, short-term traders noted it was still better than the 22 million job losses predicted in a Dow Jones Survey, while long-term investors said they know this is temporary and that many of those jobs will get restored.
