June E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average futures are edging higher during the pre-market session, posting another record high in the process.
The early rally came after last week’s trading ended on an upbeat note with the blue chip average hitting a fresh all-time high on Friday. The late-week move came on the heels of a far-weaker-than-expected April jobs report, which showed that U.S. employers added 266,000 net payrolls last month. Economists polled by Dow Jones had expected nearly a million additions.
At 1:45 GMT, June E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average futures are trading 34813, up 127 or 0.37%.
Treasury yields plunged after the release of the jobs report as investors increased bets on the Fed holding off on any tightening of policy. Persistently low yields make equities a more attractive investment.

Daily Swing Chart Technical Forecast
The direction of the June E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average on Monday is likely to be controlled by 34686.
A sustained move over 34686 will indicate the presence of buyers. Taking out the intraday high at 34814 will indicate the buying is getting stronger.
A sustained move under 34686 will signal the presence of sellers. This will put the Dow in a position to form a potentially bearish closing price reversal top. If the selling pressure increases then look for the move to extend into the rising pivot, currently at 34193.
We could see a technical bounce on the first test of 34193, but if it fails then look for a potential acceleration to the downside.
