Recommended Posts

U.S. INDICES TECHNICAL OUTLOOK:

  • S&P 500 continues to demonstrate impressive relative strength
  • Nasdaq 100 & Dow Jones also looking to make significant higher lowers
  • A bounce in risk looks near, with the U.S. leading the way
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.

    • Hi Anda, Thanks for the response. Could I ask you to clarify a few points please so that my understanding is correct: 1) when you say the ETF is not ISA eligible - do you mean specifically the ETFs that I mentioned (IDTG and ZROZ) or do you mean all US Government bond ETFs are not ISA eligible? 2) are you able to share any ETFs linked to US Government bonds that are ISA eligible or point me towards where I can find this out? 3) could you expand a little on what you mean by "we only offer US ETFs to professional traders at this point". What do you mean by US ETFs? Do you mean any/all ETFs specifically linked to US Government bonds (even if they are traded on the FTSE) or does this just include US Government bond ETFs traded in the US, or all US ETFs in general (including those not linked to Gov bonds)? Thanks!

Source: Bloomberg   Indices Shares Market trend S&P 500 DAX FTSE 100 Chris Beauchamp | Chief Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Wednesday 28 September 2022  FTSE 100 hovers at July support The index is sitting right at the 7050 support zone, which held back in July. A drop below 7000 marks a fresh bearish development, and would bring the 6874 level into view, last seen in March. Given the recent run of losses we might perhaps expect a rebound of sorts to develop, although for this to happen we would need to see a recovery above 7060, and then on above 7120. A longer-term bounce targets 7500 and then 7570, the highs from September and then August, respectively. Source: ProRealTime DAX probes recent lows There is little sign of a rebound here, with the index still close to Friday’s lows. A move back above the February and June lows of 12,400 would help to provide a more short-term bullish view, although the broader bearish outlook remains in place. Lower highs have been in place over recent months, so it would need a move above 13,500 to put a dent in this outlook. Further declines target 11,700, eating into yet more of the post-Covid rebound. Source: ProRealTime S&P 500 edges up off recent low June’s lows have been reached, after a huge decline since late August. If this level holds then the index may yet be able to stage a short-term bounce, targeting 3800 and then on towards 3900. The bigger bearish view remains intact however, given the lower high at 4127. The next major level to watch is 3582, and then on below that down to 3400. Source: ProRealTime
