Dow Jones, Nasdaq 100, S&P 500 Forecast: The Relative Strength Play

Dow Jones, Nasdaq 100, S&P 500 Forecast: The Relative Strength Play

The S&P 500 continues to hold up well compared to other major stock markets that are more heavily impacted by the Russia/Ukraine situation. While Europe and Asia head to new depths during this crisis, U.S. stocks are demonstrating glaring relative strength. With the rest of the world getting into oversold territory, a bounce in risk appears near with the U.S. leading.

The DAX, CAC, FTSE, Nikkei and others have all been hammered in recent days, with price action turning panicky. A low here shortly (perhaps as soon as today), even if just an oversold bounce, should see the S&P 500 create a new near-term high above 4416 and move towards the 200-day moving average at 4466.

There lies a trend-line off the record high just below the long-term average. A rally into the 4425/4466 area will be an important test of the recent trend lower. We may see price stall and roll over at that juncture, but if developments turn more positive we may see initial resistance taken out in quick order.

A move below last week’s low at 4279 with momentum may mean that while the U.S. has been holding up relatively well, overall sentiment will get to even the strongest of markets and lead the S&P to a retest (or worse) of the Feb 24 low at 4114.

The Nasdaq 100 may not see the 200-day moving average even if the above outlined scenario plays out as it lies all the way up to 15101. To reach the 200-day soon will likely require some positivity on the headline front. Just an oversold bounce in risk isn’t seen as being enough of a catalyst. The first line to watch is the trend-line from January and then the most recent swing-high at 14342.

The Dow Jones is holding support around the 33150/300 area, a spot that extends back to last year. We may see this hold up as a higher low as soon as early this week. If the market can get into gear look for it to rally towards the trend-line off the Jan high and 200-day MA at 35022.

    • What is Foreign Exchange? Foreign exchange (Forex or FX) is the conversion of one currency into another at a specific rate known as the foreign exchange rate. The conversion rates for almost all currencies are constantly floating as they are driven by the market forces of supply and demand. The most traded currencies in the world are the United States dollar, Euro, Japanese yen, British pound, and Australian dollar. The US dollar remains the key currency, accounting for more than 87% of total daily value traded.Factors that Affect Foreign Exchange Rates Many factors can potentially influence the market forces behind foreign exchange rates. The factors include various economic, political, and even psychological conditions. The economic factors include a government’s economic policies, trade balances, inflation, and economic growth outlook. Political conditions also exert a significant impact on the forex rate, as events such as political instability and political conflicts may negatively affect the strength of a currency. The psychology of forex market participants can also influence exchange rates. The Foreign Exchange Market The foreign exchange market is a decentralized and over-the-counter market where all currency exchange trades occur. It is the largest (in terms of trading volume) and the most liquid market in the world. On average, the daily volume of transactions on the forex market totals $5.1 trillion, according to the Bank of International Settlements’ Triennial Central Bank Survey (2016). The forex market major trading centers are located in major financial hubs around the world, including New York, London, Frankfurt, Tokyo, Hong Kong, and Sydney. Due to this reason, foreign exchange transactions are executed 24 hours, five days a week (except weekends). Despite the decentralized nature of forex markets, the exchange rates offered in the market are the same among its participants, as arbitrage opportunities can arise otherwise. The foreign exchange market is probably one of the most accessible financial markets. Market participants range from tourists and amateur traders to large financial institutions (including central banks) and multinational corporations. Also, the forex market does not only involve a simple conversion of one currency into another. Many large transactions in the market involve the application of a wide variety of financial instruments, including forwards, swaps, options, etc. Foreign currency exchange (forex) A foreign currency exchange rate is a price that represents how much it costs to buy the currency of one country using the currency of another country. Currency traders buy and sell currencies through forex transactions based on how they expect currency exchange rates will fluctuate. When the value of one currency rises relative to another, traders will earn profits if they purchased the appreciating currency, or suffer losses if they sold the appreciating currency.
