S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100: Prices, Charts, and Analysis

  • Geopolitical risk remains the top driver of risk sentiment.
  • US indices in positive territory in the European session.
Nasdaq 100 (NDX) to S&P 500 (SPX) Ratio Is the Highest since Early 2000s

The situation in Eastern Europe remains highly volatile with nearly 150,000 Russian troops stationed on the Ukraine border while a war of words continues to play out in the media. Tensions between Russia, Ukraine, and NATO remain heightened and against this backdrop risk assets are unlikely to move higher and will continue to be pressured to the downside.

How to Short Sell a Stock When Trading Falling Markets

The S&P 500 closed 2.1% lower Thursday, reversing a mid-week rally, with losses seen across the board. The indices is currently 0.50% higher in pre-US trade but the move lacks conviction with the 20-day simple moving average (red line) acting as resistance again after providing support earlier this month. A break below Monday’s 4,359 low opens the way for a re-test of 4,271, a horizontal line of support that held firm and provoked a rebound in early October and late January this year.

The Nasdaq 100 closed nearly 3% lower on Thursday as a combination of political risk and the negative impact of higher interest rates pushed a wide range of growth stocks sharply lower. The Nasdaq is 0.7% higher in pre-US trade but the indices remains heavy and likely to make further lows. While the S&P 500 remains above its early October low, the Nasdaq opened below this level today, leaving this as short-term resistance. The indices is below all three simple moving averages with a cluster of lows made in late January between 13,720 and 13,850 the next zone of support.

    • Still the silence is deafening in here. When will this happen?  it have moved most my Trading Capital to another broker who does support Trading veiw Does the deal with Tastytrade have something to do with this lack of progress?  
    • Well to me I feel that the  crypto market values transparency and reliable services. And Bitget has embraced this approach, attracting a large following,gaining up to 1.4million twitter followers,. Recent data shows significant growth in trading volume, solidifying its position in the market.  The exchanges  focus on user protection and satisfaction has fostered a loyal community. As the platform continues to evolve, its value may continue to grow. What are your thoughts on the importance of value in crypto, and what do you see as Bitget's future potential?
    • As more users embrace Dapp, it gets easier to trade crypto, engage in DeFi lending/borrowing and trade NFTs. With the growing need to trade NFT comes the introduction of Love Power Movement, a transparent and accessible marketplace with the best conditions for successful NFT sales. Although the NFT sector has recorded significant growth, it's still impeded by challenges like low protection of artists' and buyers' data, absence of organised policy protecting sellers and buyers amongst others. Love Power aims to tackle those by offering fixed commissions and royalties to creators, ensuring proper profit for sales. LPM token forming a crucial part of the ecosystem has been launched with no presale and VC investment, with intent to direct proceeds from token sales to NFT artists. As $LPM prepares to list on Bitget, the vast community of Love Power Movement would surely be watching keenly.
