E-mini NASDAQ-100 Index (NQ) Futures Technical Analysis – May 31, 2019 Forecast

If today’s early downside momentum continues then look for a test of a downtrending Gann angle at 7079.50. Crossing to the weak side of this angle will put the index in a bearish position. This could lead to a quick test of the Fibonacci level at .7035.00

E-mini NASDAQ-100 Index

June E-mini NASDAQ-100 Index futures are trading lower shortly before the cash market open. Another jump in Treasury yields is raising concerns about a U.S. economic slowdown, putting pressure on demand for equities.

On Thursday, the U.S. Commerce department showed a dip in inflation during the first quarter due to slower-than-expected consumer spending. This means that low inflation is more than “transitory” like the Fed has been claiming. If today’s Core PCE Price Index report comes in weaker than expected then this will signal a Fed rate cut later in the year.

The catalyst behind the weakness today is President Trump’s vow to place a tariff on imports from Mexico. This is encouraging investors to sell higher risk assets.

At 11:57 GMT, June E-mini NASDAQ-100 Index futures are trading 7156.75, down 98.50 or -1.35%.
