E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average

December E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average futures are trading flat early Thursday after posting a higher close the previous session. Yesterday’s intraday reversal caught many traders by surprise because it developed after a pair of bearish earnings reports from Caterpillar and Boeing failed to drive the Dow sharply lower.

The price action suggests traders were expecting the weak earnings news and the lack of progress over Brexit to drive prices lower, however, when aggressive sellers failed to show up, the market quickly reversed to the upside, triggering an intraday short-covering rally.

At 06:23 GMT, December E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average futures are trading 26805, up 3 or +0.01%.
