S&P 500 | Not Out of the Woods Yet

A firm start to the week for the S&P 500, finding comfort from an unwind of war trades with gold and oil under notable pressure this morning. That said, the relief rally in the S&P 500 is nearing resistance situated at 4590-4600, presenting itself as an area to fade the recent rally. The S&P 500 is not out of the woods yet and while the geopolitical tensions have taken a step back, the uber hawkish Fed trade remains. In turn, the bias is still a fade on rallies for the index as the Fed look to get monetary policy back to neutral or above as quickly as possible.

Bank of England Governor Bailey noted that the MPC’s change in forward guidance, from policy tightening was likely appropriate to saying it may be appropriate, reflected the level of uncertainty and risks faced. The Governor also reiterated that the MPC sees inflation risks in both directions over the longer term outlook, while also flagging risks over the beginning of a growth slowdown. While the BoE have hiked in three consecutive meetings and expected to hike rates again in May, they appear to be showing concerns over the cost of living squeeze, which in turn could perhaps see the BoE pausing their hiking cycle with the Bank rate at 1%. For GBP, this means the currency will continue to perform poorly against currencies backed by an increasingly hawkish central bank, while GBP/USD is at risk of another 1.30 test.

    • WD Gann Said over 100 years ago "When TIME & PRICE BALANCE, the trend HAS to change" . Yes, there is a definite maths relationship, Via Gann or Elliot-waves. The pity is I cannot get Gann Angles on IG as they are not properly defined as per Gann, and do NOT REMAIN FIXED AT THOSE ANGLES WHEN YOU CHANGE TO ANY TIMEFRAME!!!!!!!! Even the Gann fan angles, used by all brokers, are a joke. These angles are not set arbitrarily as the system allows, and no means to measure angles!!!!

But remember, trading isn't a guaranteed shortcut to quick cash. It takes discipline, risk management, and continuous learning.
    • After a poor finish to last week, Asian markets mostly traded in negative fashion on Monday, though some bargain-hunting in the Nikkei lifted that index off its lows. With major central bank decisions out of the way for the time being, the focus now shifts to the possibility of a government shutdown in the US. House Republicans are making efforts to consider stopgap funding measures to stave off a shutdown. Today's major events include the German IFO index, plus testimony to eurozone lawmakers by ECB president Christine Lagarde.
