The E-mini Nasdaq 100 is up big for July, showing little desire to pullback. The 38% retracement for the month’s trading range has not been threatened. This is a sign of robust strength. Last week’s extreme high of 5938.50 may act as a catalyst for further gains.

E-mini S&P 500

Moderate volume has kept E-mini S&P 500 futures in check ahead of critical economic data releases later in the week. As of now, the E-mini S&P’s are trading inside of Friday’s range. The technical outlook remains bullish with price above Friday’s low of 2462.75 and far north of July’s 38% retracement at 2449.25.
