June E-mini S&P 500 Index futures are trading higher for a third session this week on Wednesday and the fourth in a row. The risk-on tone is being fueled by optimism over the recovery from coronavirus-led shutdowns. The catalysts behind the moves are better-than-expected U.S. economic reports.
ADP and Moody’s Analytics reported private payrolls fell by another 2.76 million in May. The ADP number was far less than the 8.75 million estimate. The reason for the wide disparity was not immediately clear, CNBC reported.
At 14:38 GMT, June E-mini S&P 500 Index futures are at 3107.00, up 30.00 or +0.97%.

American Airlines, Delta and United Airlines all gained more than 2%. JPMorgan Chase, Wells Fargo and Bank of America also climbed at least 2.9% each.

Daily Swing Chart Technical Forecast
The direction of the June E-mini S&P 500 Index the rest of the session on Wednesday is likely to be determined by trader reaction to 3077.00.
A sustained move over 3077.00 will indicate the presence of buyers. If this move is able to generate enough upside momentum then look for the rally to possibly extend into the March 3 main top t 3131.00.
A sustained move under 3077.00 will put the index in a position to form a potentially bearish closing price reversal top. If confirmed, this could trigger the start of a 2 to 3 day correction with the potential targets lined up at 2992.00, 2930.25 and 2903.75.
