After trading as low as 62.69 during the day, the share bounced off the key support level at 62.93. The failure to close below the support might increase that levels importance as support going forward. Prices are trading close to the key resistance level at 63.75.

Buying could accelerate should prices move above the nearby swing high at 63.75 where further buy stops might get triggered. With prices trading close to this year's high at 64.99, upside momentum could speed up should ES be able to break out to new highs for the year.
