This is game of market makers. I see many times after strong report company stock, index`s does not follow for him. In my trading I does not use it, but if you want do it. Look to industry and sector how react they on this report. That always 50/50 situation. For example we have two scenario (in reality we have much more):
1. Company show very strong report, but that is not good situation for other company in this industry because this is industry have fixed income in long time period.
2. Another way company show strong report AND before this report other company from this sector/industry show also strong report. That means this is sector/industry have more money and received more income and in this case when all company go UP, Nasdaq or Dow can follow him.

But for understand it you need few years in trading ))

Fundamentals is a big part of my trading. From my experience the ES just has too many sectors to make a play on earnings. If a whole sector is doing good, like tech, then that can help the ES. Since I've been paying attention to fundamentals the only companies I seen move the ES was one of the FAANG stocks and Telsa. I think that's mainly because those move the NQ and the NQ and ES correlates. I believe ES is more about sectors. I seen the ES have a trend day and the reason for the trend was the Banking sector had a good day.

The NQ on the other hand, there's always moves when Facebook, Apple, Microsoft, Google, Netflix and Telsa report earnings. These stocks weigh a lot on the NQ. As I'm writing this the NQ had a big drop today, 02-05-20, because Telsa had a big drop at the open. You can make a scalp play when earnings are released on NQ with one of these companies. For me, I would rather all ready be in the market before the earnings. Example: Apple reports at 15:30 Chicago time. Depending on how the day is going, like if it's a trend day, I will be in the trade, riding the trend, then hold the trade until 15:30. Then earnings produce a continuation in the direction I'm already in then I'll hold it for another 5 minutes or overnight depend on whats going on.

When one of these companies report in the morning, and it exceeds expectations or disappoint by a lot, then ppl should reaction off that new info. The NQ will move quick and could trend. Then, the ES may correlate and trend.

Also you can make a play on Boeing news with the Dow (YM) because Boeing weighs a lot on the Dow.
