September E-mini S&P 500 Index futures are trading higher late in the session on Wednesday after the benchmark cash index rose to a fresh record. The move was driven by a surge in mega-cap technology stocks.
With interest rates falling and Wall Street fretting about a peak in economic growth, investors have rediscovered their old Big Tech favorites. Apple rose 1.8% and Amazon gained 0.6% even after the e-commerce giant rallied nearly 5% on Tuesday.
At 20:19 GMT, September E-mini S&P 500 Index futures are trading 4349.25, up 15.25 or +0.35%.
Helping to boost the index was the dovish Federal Reserve minutes from its June 15-16 meeting. Central bank policymakers held short-term interest rates near zero but also indicated that it might be adjusting policy otherwise in the months ahead. The Fed also revealed the central bank discussed tapering but was in no rush to start the process.

The main trend is up according to the daily swing chart. A trade through the intraday high at 4353.25 will reaffirm the uptrend. The main trend will change to down on a move through 4126.75.

The minor trend is also up. A trade through 4305.25 will change the minor trend to down. This will also shift momentum to the downside.
The nearest potential support levels are 4329.25 and 4311.25.
The short-term range is 4126.75 to 4353.25. Its 50% level is 4240.00.
