E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average (YM) Futures Technical Analysis – 50% Resistance at 22524

James Hyerczyk

June E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average futures are trading higher on Tuesday after recovering from earlier weakness. Despite the early strength, the buying has been a little tentative with the blue chip average still trading below last week’s high.

With the Dow getting ready to wrap up its worst period of losses and historic market volatility sparked by the coronavirus pandemic, there were a few glimmers of hope for the future. U.S. Consumer Confidence dropped less than expected in March. Goldman Sachs said the economy would go through an unprecedented plunge in the second quarter, but the recovery would then be the fastest in history and shares of big tech stocks like Google-parent Alphabet, Amazon, Microsoft and Apple rose.

At 15:20 GMT, June E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average futures are trading 22216, up 33 or +0.15%.

Daily Technical Forecast

Bearish Scenario

A sustained move under 22524 will indicate the presence of sellers. The first target is a downtrending Gann angle at 21842. Crossing to the weak side of this angle could trigger a break into a pair of Gann angles at 21158 to 21058.

If 21058 fails as support then look for the selling to extend into the short-term retracement zone at 20316 to 19789.
