E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average (YM) Futures Technical Analysis – Trying to Form Reversal Bottom

June E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average futures are trading higher on Tuesday as we approach the mid-session. After dipping more than 200 points earlier in the session, the market turned around on reports of progress on a possible treatment for the coronavirus and more monetary stimulus from the U.S. Federal Reserve.

At 15:30 GMT, June E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average futures are at 20604, up 343 or +1.69%.

Biotech giant Regeneron said Tuesday morning that it’s aiming to have doses of a potential drug for COVID-19 ready to start human clinical trials by early summer. The announcement, which represents a marked acceleration in the company’s drug timeline, sparked a 9% rally in the company’s equity.

Meanwhile, the Fed announced measures to help companies struggling to get short-term funding amid the outbreak.

Daily Technical Analysis

The main trend is down according to the daily swing chart. However, today’s price action has put the Dow in a position to post a potentially bullish closing price reversal bottom. This won’t change the trend to up, but if confirmed, it could lead to a 2 to 3 day counter-trend rally.

A trade through 19736 will signal a resumption of the downtrend. Buyers will have to take out 26962 in order to change the main trend to up.

A close over 20261 will form a closing price reversal bottom.

The minor range is 26962 to 19736. Its retracement zone at 23349 to 24202 is the nearest potential upside target.
