Based on the early price action and the current price at 3148.00, the direction of the December E-mini S&P 500 Index the rest of the session on Monday is likely to be determined by trader reaction to the downtrending Gann angle at 3148.00.

December E-mini S&P 500 Index futures are trading flat shortly after the cash market opening. The benchmark index rose to near-record highs on Friday, boosted by a U.S. jobs report that easily topped analyst expectations, however, there has been no follow-through to the upside so far on Monday.

Bad export data for November out of China could be helping to cap today’s gains as well as position-squaring ahead of Wednesday’s U.S. Federal Reserve monetary policy decision.

At 14:51 GMT, December E-mini S&P 500 Index futures are at 3148.00, up 2.00 or +0.06%.
