June E-mini S&P 500 Index futures are trading higher at the mid-session on Wednesday. The bench mark index turned around after early session weakness threatened to dismantle the attempted recovery. The market began its recovery on news that President Donald Trump plans to delay the implementation of auto tariffs. The news, which was first reported by Bloomberg News, sent auto stocks higher. Additionally, three sources told CNBC the administration will delay those levies by up to six months.

At 16:24 GMT, June E-mini S&P 500 Index futures are trading 2851.00, up 11.75 or +0.42%. Earlier in the session, the index traded as low as 2815.00.

Daily Technical Analysis

The main trend is down according to the daily swing chart, however, momentum shifted to the upside when buyers confirmed yesterday’s closing price reversal bottom.
