September E-mini S&P 500 Index futures are surging shortly after the opening, erasing earlier session weakness. The jump in prices was triggered by a surprise announcement by the U.S. which said it was delaying China tariffs until December 15 on items including cellphones and clothing. The U.S. also removed some items from the list of new tariffs outright.

At 14:24 GMT, September E-mini S&P 500 Index futures are trading 2934.25, up 54.00 or +1.88%. This is up from a low of 2866.75.

Daily Technical Forecast

The key area to watch all session on Tuesday is the price cluster at 2932.25, 2932.50 and 2933.50. This cluster is being formed by a pair of Gann angles and the short-term Fibonacci level.

Bullish Scenario

A sustained move over 2933.50 will indicate the presence of buyers. If this move creates enough upside momentum then look for a rally into the next downtrending Gann angle at 2981.50.
