After two session of rebound from bottom levels, world stock markets are showing signs of turning range bound.
Dow Jones futures are positive, but with smaller margins and sitting near the previous close. Dow Jones had rallied more than 400 points in the overnight session in US stock markets, but the index created a “top hammer” candlestick which is usually considered a trend reversal signal from the top,
S&P 500 futures are trading with single digit gains at this hour, indicating that the force is weak with this index.
We are not expecting any big positive move from US stock futures as US stock markets will be waiting for a big event on Tuesday night; the first presidential debate between rivals Trump and Biden in the run up of US presidential election 2020.
For world stock markets, today’s session could become slow and volatile as all markets will be waiting for news and how US stock markets react to this debate.
