E-mini Dow in Position to Post Closing Price Reversal Top

June E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average futures are trading lower on Wednesday after giving up earlier gains. The move is being driven by another surge in crude oil prices, which is renewing inflation fears.

Oil prices ticked higher on the day, with international oil benchmark Brent crude advancing about 4% on top $120 per barrel. U.S. crude gained more than 4% to about $114 per barrel.

Higher oil prices are helping to boost Dow component Chevron Crop, which is up 0.96%. The biggest losers include Salesforce.Com, down by 3.49% and Home Depot, lower by 3.19%.

Daily Swing Chart Technical Forecast

The direction of the June E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average into the close on Wednesday is likely to be determined by trader reaction to 34709.

Bearish Scenario

A sustained move under 34709 will indicate the presence of sellers. The first downside target is the main 50% level at 34397, followed by the short-term Fibonacci level at 34288.

The Fib level at 34288 is a potential trigger point for an acceleration to the downside with the short-term 50% level at 33868 the next likely downside target.

Bullish Scenario

Holding 34288 to 34397 will signal the presence of buyers. But the E-mini Dow is going to have to recapture 34709 in order to show strength.

Recovering 34709 then overcoming the intraday high at 34792 will indicate the buying is getting stronger. This could trigger a quick surge into the resistance cluster at 34942 to 34950. The latter is a potential trigger point for an acceleration to the upside.

Side Notes

A close under 34709 will form a closing price reversal top. If confirmed, this could trigger the start of a 2-3 day correction.
