James Hyerczyk

June E-mini S&P 500 Index futures are edging lower late in the session on Friday, but clawing back earlier losses as traders braced for an upcoming news conference on U.S.-China relations from President Donald Trump.

The benchmark index began to cut its losses after a Bloomberg News report said Trump was not pulling the U.S. from the phase one trade deal with China. A reporter from PBS NewsHour also said the announcement would not include additional tariffs or changes to the existing trade agreement.

At 18:41 GMT, June E-mini S&P 500 Index futures are trading 3023.00, down 15.00 or -0.49%.

In other news, Bank of America and Wells Fargo led bank stocks lower, falling more than 1.6% each. Citigroup and JPMorgan Chase also dipped 1.9% and 1.7% respectively.

The new minor range is 2903.75 to 3065.50. Its 50% level at 2984.50 is controlling the direction of the index on Friday.

Bullish Scenario

A sustained move over 2984.50 will indicate the presence of buyers. If this creates enough upside momentum then look for a retest of yesterday’s high at 3065.50. This is a potential trigger point for an acceleration to the upside.

Bearish Scenario

A sustained move under 2984.50 will signal the presence of sellers. This could trigger an acceleration to the downside with 2930.25 to 2903.75 the best downside target.

The main bottom at 2903.75 is a potential trigger point for an even stronger break with 2785.75 to 2765.50 the next target zone.
