U.S. INDICES TECHNICAL OUTLOOK:

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.

    • Hey @pravid17 I hope you're well.  In the leveraged trading industry there are brokers who don't hedge client's exposure and brokers (like ourselves) who do hedge client's exposure.  In a perfect world the exposure of short clients would net off the trades of long clients however this is not always the case. Our hedging model allows us to take an exposure in the underlying market for the remaining exposure which doesn't offset - This way we don't need to hedge every trade, worry about profits of our clients and results in lower costs for hedging in the underlying market (commissions, interest etc.). So say 60% of IG customer exposure in the ASX was long and 40% of exposure on the ASX was short. The 40% would net each other off but there's a remaining 20% of customers who need to be hedged to cover their positions. We go into the market and hedge this.  We make our money primarily through our spreads and overnight funding  with other fees making up a small proportion of our revenue. I would like to remind also that IG is regulated by several bodies globally, including top-tier regulators like the UK's FCA, Germany's BaFIN, Australia's ASIC - This should be quite reassuring from a dealing execution and transparency perspective.  I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other question 
    • A survey from Reviews.org, which featured 1000 Americans, found that as many as 1 in 4 US subscribers may quit the service in the next year.    Jeremy Naylor | Writer, London | Publication date: Friday 23 September 2022  There was an interesting breakdown, but the main reason was affordability. Only 18% said they would move to a cheaper competitor. IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor looks at the numbers. Netflix subscription woes Netflix Inc (All Sessions) could be in for a rough time ahead over the next 12 months if a new survey is anything to go by, which was conducted in the US. Out of the 1,000 adults that took part in this survey undertaken by Reviews.org, around 25% of those that were covered said that they would be cancelling their Netflix subscription within the next 12 months. Now, it says with that 25% of US subscribers to Netflix considering leaving, not to join a competitor, but mostly because of pressures on household bills. This is how it is split: rising cost of subscriptions - 40% inflation - 20% a lack of content - 22% spending more time on the services of others - 18% So you can see, a minority said they were going to other services, such as those provided by Disney Plus or Amazon Prime. The cost of Netflix has risen dramatically this year as its basic plan increased by 11% in January and its other plans by 20% to 25%. Now these were the first price increases for three years, so that itself is relatively new for a lot of subscribers. Netflix share price Let's take a look at the Netflix share price. You can see on the far left hand side of this chart the COVID lows at $290.39. We saw a whacking great increase there of 141% to the top and the record high in Netflix shares back in November 2021. And that was when subscriptions were rising, people were paying more for their services, and it was all humming beautifully. And then all of a sudden people started questioning the numbers of streaming services they were undertaking with some deciding to withdraw from Netflix. All of a sudden the big drops started coming through with profit warnings and sales warnings. We've recently hit a new low of $162.50. Since then there has been a little bit of an increase. We're currently trading at $232.75, but we are down by a margin of 1.75% in today's session, which reflects this news that we could well see a relatively large drop in subscribers for Netflix in the US within the next 12 months.
