Global equity wrapped up with a strong comeback last week which was quickly followed by the worst weekly decline since the start of the pandemic. Investor's hopes were re-ignited by some unexpected economic data that was seen as potential support of a 'soft landing' and as a result, the Australian share market enjoyed robust gains on Monday led by tech stocks and lithium players.

A rough second quarter in the market will come to an end this week however, considering the new month ahead, July will introduce a new round of rate rises around the globe as traders expect that uncertainties will still be challenging.

Today, we look at three popular stocks:


Tesla's shares jumped up by double digits last week despite CEO Elon Musk confessing that they are losing money. Mr Musk stated last week that Tesla's new factories in Germany and the US are 'losing billions of dollars due to battery shortages and supply disruptions in China. In recent weeks Mr Musk has been warning of job cuts and a US recession and while the comment was disappointing for the near-term outlook, investors are seemly willing to embrace a long view to betting on the EV leaders' capability to overcome the imminent challenge.

In the interim, the automaker has announced cost-savings measures and the plan for a cut to its headcount which is expected to offset the increased cost issue as Tesla remains committed to its goal of producing 1.5 million vehicles this year.

Tesla's shares have fallen 40% over the past three months and reached their lowest level since July 2021. The bounce from last week has managed to break through the months-long trendline and is on the way to forming a double-bottom. A more convincing bull-overturn can be expected once the price conquers the $780 level and a breakout spot from the weekly chart is also encouraging for the long-buyers. On the slip side, the 20-day moving average will be the critical support if the bull trend fades for the EV makers.

Fortescue Metals Group

Fortescue Metals Group’s share price has been hammered since early June as China's demand for iron ore weakened. Iron ore topped US$144 earlier in June as investors digested news that China was easing its pandemic lockdown measures and hoped the economy would recover soon. However, the global recession fears quickly doused the hope with ever more profound concern and that saw the Fortescue share price down 21% since June 8th at $21.63.

Pulling back to the floor level of the year, the share is currently seeking support from the level of $16.7, which, if broken, will bring the price to the November low and retest the area below $16. On the other hand, the March low at $17.5 will be an imminent challenge to overcome.

As the leading biotechnology company and third-largest company on the ASX, CSL’s share price has tumbled lower with the market in 2022. Since the start of the year, the global biotech’s shares have lost nearly 10% of their value.

The recent volatility across the equity market has been triggered by the prospect surrounding more possible rate hikes to combat inflation but the outlook for CSL should remain robust for two reasons.

First, the demand is rising for defensive stocks. Pharmaceutical companies are responsible for producing vital medicines and treatments and these are often treated as priorities for governments and consumers, so their spending is unlikely to be precipitously cut during a downturn.

Secondly, the company has grown at a strong and steady pace with revenue increasing at a rate between 7 to 15% during the past five years. Its steady and high growth outlook should make the discounted price more attractive to the long-term buyers.

From a technical viewpoint, the price has bounced back on the 50-day moving average and looks to be on the way to the $274 level before challenging May high at $279. The level of $268, where the current 20 days MA sits, should be a major support for now.

    • AUDUSD Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge Day Chart, Australian Dollar/U.S.Dollar (AUDUSD) Day Chart AUDUSD Elliott Wave Technical Analysis FUNCTION: Trend MODE: corrective STRUCTURE: blue wave 2 POSITION:  black wave 3 DIRECTION NEXT HIGHER  DEGREES:blue wave 2 DETAILS: :blue wave 1 looking completed at  0.67165. Now blue wave 2 of 3 is in play. Wave Cancel invalid level: 0.63628   The AUDUSD Elliott Wave analysis on the day chart examines the market using Elliott Wave theory to understand the ongoing trend and forecast future movements. The current market function is identified as a trend, indicating that the price movements are generally following a predictable pattern that can be analyzed and projected.   The mode of the market movement is corrective, suggesting that the market is in a phase of adjustment or retracement within the larger trend. Specifically, the structure being analyzed is blue wave 2, which is part of a larger corrective pattern within the broader trend.   The market is currently positioned in black wave 3, meaning it is in the third wave of a larger five-wave sequence. This position within the wave sequence indicates that the market is in a significant phase of movement that often involves substantial price shifts.   Looking to the next higher degrees, the analysis suggests a transition to blue wave 3 after the completion of the current corrective phase (blue wave 2). This indicates that following the correction, the market is expected to resume its primary trend with an impulsive wave, which is typically characterized by strong and decisive price movements.   The details of the analysis highlight that blue wave 1 has been completed at a specified level, marking the end of the initial phase of the trend. Now, blue wave 2 of 3 is in play, indicating that the market is undergoing a correction before it resumes the primary trend direction with blue wave 3. A critical aspect of this analysis is the wave cancel invalid level, set at a specific point. This level serves as a threshold; if the market price drops below this point, it would invalidate the current wave count and necessitate a reassessment of the wave structure and market projections. Monitoring this level is essential to confirm the validity of the wave pattern and ensure accurate predictions.   In summary, the AUDUSD on the day chart is currently in a corrective phase within blue wave 2 of a larger trend. The market is expected to complete this correction before transitioning to blue wave 3, marking a return to the primary trend. The wave cancel invalid level is a crucial point to watch to validate the current analysis and future forecasts.     AUDUSD Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge 4 Hour Chart,       Australian Dollar/U.S.Dollar (AUDUSD) 4 Hour Chart     AUDUSD Elliott Wave Technical Analysis   FUNCTION: Counter Trend MODE: corrective STRUCTURE: red wave C POSITION: blue wave 2 DIRECTION NEXT HIGHER  DEGREES:blue wave 3 DETAILS: red wave B of 2 looking completed, now red wave C of 2 is in paly. Wave Cancel invalid level: 0.63628       The AUDUSD Elliott Wave analysis on the 4-hour chart focuses on the current market trends using Elliott Wave theory. This analysis identifies the prevailing function as a counter-trend, suggesting that the market is moving against the primary trend, undergoing a temporary correction or retracement phase.   The mode of this market movement is corrective, which is characterized by a structure designed to counter the preceding trend. Specifically, the structure under examination is red wave C, which is part of a larger corrective wave pattern. In this context, the market is currently positioned in blue wave 2, indicating that the market is in the process of completing a correction before potentially resuming the primary trend.   The analysis suggests that the direction in the next higher degrees will be blue wave 3. This implies that after the completion of the current corrective phase (blue wave 2), the market is expected to enter a new impulsive phase, characterized by stronger and more decisive price movements in the direction of the primary trend.   The details provided indicate that red wave B of blue wave 2 appears to be completed, and now red wave C of blue wave 2 is in play. This phase involves the market completing its corrective movements before potentially resuming its primary trend direction. The completion of red wave C will mark the end of the corrective phase (blue wave 2), setting the stage for the next impulsive wave (blue wave 3).   A crucial aspect of this analysis is the wave cancel invalid level, set at 0.63628. This level serves as a critical threshold; if the market price drops below this point, it would invalidate the current wave count, necessitating a reassessment of the wave structure and the market’s projected direction. Monitoring this level is essential to confirm the validity of the wave pattern and ensure accurate market predictions.   In summary, the AUDUSD is currently in a counter-trend on the 4-hour chart, undergoing a corrective phase within blue wave 2. The market is expected to complete red wave C before transitioning to blue wave 3, marking a return to the primary trend. Keeping an eye on the invalidation level is crucial to validate the current wave count and ensure the accuracy of future market forecasts.   Technical Analyst : Malik Awais Source : Tradinglounge.com get trial here!
