E-mini S&P 500 Index (ES) Futures Technical Analysis – Strong Move Above Gann Angle Support; No Visible Resistance

James Hyerczyk

December E-mini S&P 500 Index futures are trading higher late Friday after hitting a record high earlier in the session. The benchmark index is also in a position to post a record high close.

The index was underpinned from the start, driven by positive comments from a high-ranking White House official on Thursday. White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said China and the U.S. we’re getting close to reaching a trade deal.

The rally was further driven by optimistic comments from U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, who said in an interview on Fox Business Network on Friday, that there was a very high probability the United States would reach a final agreement on a phase one trade deal with China.

“We’re down to the last details now,” Ross said.

At 20:51 GMT, December E-mini S&P 500 Index futures are trading 3116.00, up 19.00 or +0.62%.
