September E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average futures finished higher on Monday after reversing early weakness. Surging technology shares helped underpin the blue chip average, as promising trial results from potential COVID-19 vaccines helped investors look beyond spiraling new cases of the disease.
Technology-driven component Microsoft Corp provided the biggest boost to the Dow, while gains were likely limited by a weaker industrials sector.
At 05:38 GMT, September E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average futures are trading 26679, up 46 or +0.17%.
Later this week, Dow components Microsoft Corp and Intel Corp are among the high-profile companies expected to report quarterly results.
