DOW JONES, NASDAQ 100, S&P 500 TECHNICAL OUTLOOK

The S&P 500 is trying to turn higher here after coming into the week looking like it may want to continue lower, at least in the near-term. The turn could start to carve out the right shoulder of an inverse head-and-shoulders pattern.

If this pattern were to eventually trigger, it would set the market up to trade to fresh record highs. There is still a lot of room, though, for this pattern to not reach the point of validation as it would need to climb above 4637 to have a shot at doing so.

The first level up to contend with (again) is the 200-day MA at 4496. The market is poised to have that battle today given pre-market futures are trading higher. Beyond that point there is any highly meaningful resistance until the trend-line off the record high, which isn’t until around 4575.

It will be important that the market holds this week’s current low at 4370 for the outlook to remain intact. A decline below 4370 won’t necessarily take out the inverse H&S scenario completely, but will certainly undermine its likelihood and increase the chances that we see a test or worse of the Feb low.

The Nasdaq 100 is looking very similar to the S&P 500 with the inverse head-and-shoulders potential, but is in a more vulnerable position given it sold off considerably more than the S&P and the Dow. It’s generally weaker posture makes holding this week’s current low at 13788 even more important. On the top-side there are gaps to fill, with the first at 14327.

The Dow Jones has a shot at challenging it’s the neckline of the inverse head-and-shoulders pattern this week. The trend-line off the highs and the 200-day at 35017 stand in the way first. To confirm a neckline breakout, a daily close above the March high at 35372 is preferred. A close above that threshold is seen as kicking off a run back to the old record high at 36952. The recent low at 34102 is an important one to watch to keep this outlook intact.

    • The epidemic in recent years has produced profound changes in people's lifestyles, and many of their activities have started to be developed in the virtual world, which plays an important role in promoting the development of the universe of meta. Games, as an important part of the universe of meta, will be the first industry to gain the benefits , but the following conditions are still indispensable for blockchain games to achieve better development.   - Wallets and Exchanges. Through the use of wallets, game users can truly take control of the assets in the game, and exchanges provide a trading platform and liquidity for these game assets NFT, helping users trade and revitalize their game assets. Wallets are a key application for depositing blockchain assets. Currently, wallets such as Metamask are not enough to support the extensive adoption of block games, and wallets will further advance community drive the popularity of blockchain games.  - Game playability. The biggest difference between blockchain games and traditional games is that gamers are also investors. Many blockchain games have gone out of course, treating all users as investors only and forgetting that the essence of making games is to develop high-quality games that users are interested in paying for. If most people play a game just to make money, and no one is ready to pay for it, it becomes a side-scam. The revenue of the participants of the side scam comes from the money of the people who come later, and if there are not enough people who come later, they will not be able to cash in the revenue, leading to the breakdown.  - Speed and performance. A high level of concurrency is the characteristic of game applications, so Wax, Coinan Chain and Polygon, which are public chains with a high level of concurrency and low fees, have attracted a large number of game developers. In the future, with the maturity of technologies such as Ethernet Layer 2 and slice scaling, as well as the maturity of other gaming public chain technologies compatible with EVM, blockchain games will have a better development and operation environment.  - Cross-chain and interaction. Cross-chain and interaction of game assets will be a direction of future development of metaverse games, and blockchain should be connected and accessible like the Internet. The maturity of cross-chain technology in the future will promote the cross-chain transfer of game assets and NFT, and improve the interaction experience of the system                                                                                     The game should maintain the operation of the project by relying on the payment of some users or selling profitable products, just like the new blockchain game Fairy Cat in 2023, which developed diverse gameplay for players and increased the playability of the game, thus got the recognition of many players. Blockchain games need to work hard on game experience and playability. Token economics is essentially just a kind of interest structure , and even good token economics cannot replace the development, operation and profitability of the project itself. It is believed that with the maturity of the above conditions, more and more game developers and investors will enter this industry and together promote the production of some blockchain games with beautiful graphics, first-class experience and high playability.
    • Hello, Is any interest paid on "available" cash (not "margin") in a spread betting account? For example, if I held £10k in an account and had no open positions. The reason for asking is that I understand that proceeds from short sales in a CFD will receive interest (benchmark-2.5%), so was wondering if that applied to all cash, and couldn't find an answer on the web site.   Thanks.
    • Hi @Mark12 If you are trading shares, you will have the option to place a limit order to sell your existing position. When the market opens, please check if your order level is close to where the market is trading. All the best, OfentseIG
