June E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average futures are trading sharply higher at the mid-session on Friday. The rally is being driven by positive corporate news. The catalysts behind the rally are strong bank earnings from J.P. Morgan Chase and an optimistic outlook for Disney’s new streaming service. The earnings data is good news because ahead of the start of earnings season analysts had predicted the worst results since 2016.

Daily Technical Forecast

Based on the early price action, the direction of the June E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average futures contract into the close is likely to be determined by trader reaction to the downtrending Gann angle at 26429.

Bullish Scenario

Overtaking the Gann angle at 26429 will indicate the buying is getting stronger. This could drive the market into the next downtrending Gann angle at 26469. This is the last potential resistance angle before the 26509 main top.

Bearish Scenario

A sustained move under 26429 will signal the presence of sellers. If this move creates enough downside momentum then look for the selling to extend into the downtrending Gann angle at 26349. A failure to hold this angle will likely lead to a test of the pivot at 26285, followed closely by the uptrending Gann angle at 26273.
