E-mini NASDAQ-100 Index (NQ) Futures Technical Analysis – Upside Momentum Targets 7956.50, Followed by 7973.75

Based on the early price action and the current price at 7915.00, the direction of the December E-mini NASDAQ-100 Index futures contract the rest of the session on Tuesday is likely to be determined by trader reaction to the downtrending Gann angle at 7910.50.

December E-mini NASDAQ-100 Index futures are trading sharply higher after the cash market opening on Tuesday after a string of stronger-than-expected earnings reports in the banking and healthcare sectors spilled over to the technology sector.

Investors are also showing little concern over U.S.-China trade relations despite dampened hopes of a permanent trade deal. This likely means that investors feel optimistic that an agreement will eventually be reached, but that it will be a complicated process.

Furthermore, as long as the two-sides are still talking, it’s hard to be bearish. But a collapse in talks will be bearish.

At 14:19 GMT, December E-mini NASDAQ-100 Index futures are trading 7915.00, up 57.50 or +0.73%.
