E-mini NASDAQ-100 Index (NQ) Futures Technical Analysis – August 9, 2019

September E-mini NASDAQ-100 Index futures are called lower based on the pre-market trade. The early inside move suggests investor indecision and impending volatility.

Heightened concerns over U.S.-China trade relations are helping to keep a lid on prices. Earlier in the session, Bloomberg reported that the U.S. is holding off on giving permission to U.S. companies to use Huawei products, citing people familiar with the matter. Chip stocks fell on the news, helping to drive down demand for technology stocks.

At 13:25 GMT, September E-mini NASDAQ-100 Index futures are trading 7691.00, down 44.75 or -0.58%.

Bullish Scenario

A sustained move over 7735.75 will indicate the presence of buyers. This will also put the index on the strong side of an uptrending Gann angle at 7737.00. If this move creates enough upside momentum then look for the rally to possibly extend into the downtrending Gann angle at 7859.75.
