S&P 500, Nasdaq 100, Dow Jones to Continue Recovery Bounce

U.S. INDICES TECHNICAL OUTLOOK:

  • S&P 500 recovery anticipated to continue for a bit longer
  • Nasdaq 100 has clear levels to watch in the days ahead
  • Dow Jones has a prior high it needs to overcome

S&P 500, NASDAQ 100, DOW JONES TECHNICAL OUTLOOK REMAINS POSITIVE
The market has had a strong upward move since last week, and on that the recovery bounce is still intact. It is seen, however, as being a potentially bumpy ride higher as the overall upward trajectory is viewed as countertrend in nature within the context of a bear market move.

This means strength with overlapping price action as the market is unable to garner any real sponsorship, and thus momentum. The S&P 500 is trying to get over a late-June swing high but struggling at the moment. A set back from here will be watched closely for another higher low since the June bottom.

Just ahead lies a slope from early in the year that could act as resistance. It currently clocks in around the 4010 mark. Should we see slope resistance broken look for more strength up towards 4100, with the 4200 area being the most optimistic target before another meaningful high is put into place.

The thinking is that right now we are seeing a summer recovery before a fall swoon that will take the market much lower. It may be during that swoon a meaningful low is put into place, but until we see capitulation any rally that unfolds prior to such an event will continue to be viewed as only corrective and vulnerable to failure.

    • The S&P 500, Nasdaq, and Dow Jones soared to new records on cooling inflation and Fed rate cut hopes, despite rising import prices. Key economic indicators and Fed minutes loom.   Written by: Tony Sycamore | Market Analyst, Australia   Publication date: Monday 20 May 2024 05:51 Last week, the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq reached fresh record highs, while the Dow Jones closed above 40,000 for the first time, locking in its fifth straight week of gains. Cooler US inflation data fuelled last week's record-breaking run, bolstering hopes of Fed rate cuts this year. The Nasdaq added 2.12%, the S&P 500 gained 1.54%, and the Dow Jones added 490 points (1.24%). Taking some gloss off Wednesday's post-CPI euphoria, import prices on Friday night rose 0.9% MoM in April, the most since March 2022, accelerating from an upwardly revised 0.6% gain in March. Nonetheless, the US rates market started the week pricing in a 70% chance of a 25 basis points (bp) Fed rate cut in September. While there is now a lack of tier one macro data, until Core PCE inflation data on the 31 of May, there is still plenty to keep traders busy this week, including the Feds meeting minutes, flash PMIs, durable goods, and a roster full of central bank’s speakers. On Thursday morning at 7:00am, AI super stock Nvidia's earnings are scheduled to drop, which my colleague Hebe Chen previews here. What is expected from FOMC meeting minutes Date: Thursday, 23 of May at 4am AEST At its meeting in May, US policymakers kept interest rates unchanged at 5.25%-5.50% as widely expected. Fed Chair Jerome Powell indicated a high threshold for additional rate hikes. However, he also highlighted a "lack of further progress" towards the Fed's inflation objective, which needs to be seen before considering rate cuts. This has been echoed by a slew of Fed officials' comments lately, with the high-for-longer rate outlook likely to be reiterated in the upcoming minutes. The minutes will be slightly backward-looking, given that they will not factor in the recent patch of softer economic data, including weaker-than-expected jobs growth and cooler inflation data, which has bolstered hopes of Fed rate cuts before year-end. Nevertheless, clues will be sought from the minutes on the timeline for possible rate cuts and policymakers' views on the inflation and growth outlook. S&P 500 technical analysis Last week's surge in the S&P 500 cash above the March high of 5264 negated the view that the correction viewed in April was missing a final leg lower and, in theory, suggests the uptrend has resumed towards 5400. However, before that can occur, the S&P 500 must first see a weekly close above the weekly trendline resistance at 5300/25is, which comes from the 4818 high of January 2022 and picks up the March 5264 high. On the downside, a break below 5150/20ish, the same level we leaned against in March and April, would indicate that the rally has run its course.

However, before that can occur, the Nasdaq must first see a weekly close above the weekly trendline resistance at 18,650/70ish, which comes from the 16,764 high of November 2021 and picks up the March 18,464 high. On the downside, a break below 17,750, the same level we leaned against in March and April, would indicate that the rally has run its course.

    • AUD/USD surged to .6693, its highest since January, driven by cooler US inflation and China’s property market measures. Upcoming RBA meeting minutes will be key.   Source: Getty Images   Forex AUD/USD United States dollar Inflation Australian dollar China Written by: Tony Sycamore | Market Analyst, Australia   Publication date: Monday 20 May 2024 08:11 Last week was a stellar one for the AUD/USD as it finished at .6693 (1.37%) for its highest weekly close since the first week of the year. In the first instance, the AUD/USD was boosted by cooler US inflation data, which weighed on a tired US dollar and reinforced expectations of Fed rate cuts before year-end. The second pillar of support for the AUD/USD came after the Chinese government announced a raft of measures on Friday afternoon to boost confidence in the Chinese property market. Measures announced included lowering deposit requirements and urging local governments to buy unsold homes and convert them into affordable housing. While more needs to be done to completely revitalize the Chinese property market, last week's announcement appears to mark the conclusion of seven years of pain after XI Jinping famously said, "Houses are for living in, not for speculation." After a mute response on Friday, the announcement's impact has flowed more readily through markets today. Evidence includes a 2% rise in the price of iron ore futures in Singapore to around $117.70 per tonne, while copper futures hit a new high today of $5.1990, up almost 3% at one point, following a 3.5% gain on Friday night. We would expect the impact to continue to extend into the AUD/USD; however, before it does so, there is the small matter of the RBA meeting minutes, in which the RBA sounded less hawkish than feared. RBA meeting minutes Date: Tuesday, 21 May at 11.30am AEST The minutes from the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA)'s May meeting are scheduled to be released on Tuesday, May 21, at 11:30 am. At its board meeting in May, the RBA kept its official cash rate on hold at 4.35%, as widely expected. Despite a higher-than-expected Q1 inflation read, the RBA was less hawkish than feared as it retained a balanced bias, noting that it is not "ruling anything in or out". The RBA revised its inflation forecasts for this year higher, leaving its inflation forecasts unchanged for the end of 2025 and the end of 2026. At the same time, the RBA revised its growth and unemployment forecasts slightly lower. The minutes will be closely scrutinised to determine what options the RBA Board considered at its Board meeting in May and any clues behind the RBA's less hawkish than expected tone.

Downtrend resistance from the January 2023 .7158 high is currently at .6750ish. Uptrend support from the October 2022 .6170 low is at .6340ish. AUD/USD weekly chart   Source: TradingView Last week's post-US CPI surge above resistance at .6650/70 has increased the chances that the AUD/USD based at the April 19 .6362 low. Providing the AUD/USD continues to hold above support at .6670/50ish, it keeps the short-term uptrend intact and the AUD/USD on track for a test of downtrend resistance at .6750ish. On the downside, the AUD/USD has initial support from the 200-day moving average at .6520ish and below that, a layer of support at .6480ish from swing lows in March and April, reinforced by the February .6442 low.
