E-mini NASDAQ-100 Index

September E-mini NASDAQ-100 Index futures are soaring to a record high at the mid-session on Monday as data showing unexpected growth in the U.S. services sector last month and optimism over China’s revival helped investors look past a spike in new cases of COVID-19 at home.

The ISM’s non-manufacturing activity index jumped to 57.1 in June, almost returning to pre-pandemic levels, but a recent surge in COVID-19 cases in the United States has threatened the emergency recovery, according to Reuters.

At 15:56 GMT, September E-mini NASDAQ-100 Index futures are trading 10609.00, up 253.25 or 2.45%.

During Asian hours, Chinese stocks surged 5% on ample liquidity, cheap funding and expectations of a faster and a better bounce-back in business activity than other major countries that are still battling the coronavirus crisis.

Among the individual shares, Tesla Inc surged 7.4%, building on a four-day rally, after JPMorgan bumped up its price target for the electric carmaker’s stock following its better-than-expected quarterly deliveries.

Daily Swing Chart Technical Forecast

We’re at all-time highs so there is no resistance so don’t try to pick a top, you’re just feeding the bull anyway.

If you feel the need to short the market or if you’re looking for an excuse to book profits, then wait for a closing price reversal top and sell the confirmation. But you’re going to have to wait a long time today for this chart pattern because it won’t form unless there is a close under 10355.75.
