Stock market futures higher before the market open
Phase one of the trade deal between China and the U.S could happen before the end of the year. But the growing situation in Hong Kong might hinder the progress.

Under the current situation, the market seems will continue to observe the growing situation in Hong Kong.

Dow Jones Industrial Average (INDU)
No change yet to the direction of DJIA which pointed upward. The index might continue to print fresh all-time high on the daily chart. Traders better avoid shorting the equity market at the moment until there is a change in the sentiment. If the index moves lower then it might find support at the trendline and SMA 50.

CMCSA might move lower and target the daily SMA 200. Traders could also prepare for long positions near it.

PBR corrected lower after the share prices rejected from the level around $16.80 – $17.00. At the current time, the share prices supported by trendline and a cluster of averages. We expect PBR to bounce and start moving upward to test $16.80 – $17.00 area.
