June E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average futures are edging higher shortly after the cash market opening on Monday as investors remained neutral ahead of a major U.S. inflation report later this week, while heavyweight technology shares largely shrugged off a deal by the world’s richest nations on a global minimum corporate tax.

At 13:35 GMT, June E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average futures are trading 34769, up 27 or +0.08%.

On Thursday, June 10, investors will get the opportunity to react to the latest CPI and Core CPI reports. Consumer inflation for May is expected to have risen by 0.4%, down from 0.8% in April. Core CPI is expected to have risen by 0.4%, down from 0.9% in April.

Providing the support early in the session is Visa. The credit card company is trading 233.34, up $3.20 or +1.39%. On the downside, Dow Inc is trading $69.66, down $0.71 or -1.01%.

Daily Swing Chart Technical Forecast

The direction of the June E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average is likely to be determined by trader reaction to 34742.

Bullish Scenario

A sustained move over 34742 will indicate the presence of buyers. Taking out 34827 will reaffirm the uptrend and could trigger an acceleration to the upside with 35000 the next major upside target.

Bearish Scenario

A sustained move under 34742 will signal the presence of sellers. If this creates enough downside momentum then look for the selling to possibly extend into the minor pivot at 34499. Since the main trend is up, buyers could come in on the first test of this level. If it fails then look for the selling to possibly extend into the main bottom at 34310.
