Things to Consider Before US Market Open Today

Start trading
Updated: 13 July 2020
  1. SPX futures (/ES)are stronger this morning with a 0.68% rise and trading near 3200 at the moment. We did break the tight flag on Friday and today we may be heading towards the red channel top that is aligned with the previous pivot at 3230 area. Watch that zone for some resistance and if not, can have room to 3300+.
