December E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average futures are trading sharply lower late in the session on Monday as a broad sell-off in technology shares spread to the blue chip average. Investors shifted out of technology issues in the face of rising Treasury yields. Meanwhile, fresh U.S.-China concerns over trade also gave investors an excuse to reduce risk exposure.
At 18:05 GMT, December E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average futures are trading 33818, down 349 or -1.02%.
On the good side, Merck & Co Inc is up 1.55% and Chevron Corp is trading 0.74% higher. Merck built on gains from Friday after developing an experimental antiviral pill for those most at risk of contracting severe COVID-19. Chevron rose as crude oil hit another three-year high.

Daily Swing Chart Technical Forecast
The direction of the December E-mini Dow into the close on Monday is likely to be determined by trader reaction to 33826.
A sustained move under 33826 will indicate the presence of sellers. If this move creates enough downside momentum then look for the selling to possibly extend into Friday’s low at 33383.
Taking out 33383 will indicate the selling pressure is getting stronger. This could trigger an acceleration into the June 21 main bottom at 32835.
A sustained move over 33826 will signal the return of buyers. This could trigger the momentum needed to retest the main 50% level at 34132.
Overtaking 34167 will turn the Dow higher for the day. This would be a bullish sign.
