Dax 40 Dives as Equity Rout Widens After Fed Chair Powell Returned to Hawkish  Script

 

The Dax 40 gapped lower to start the week as the ramifications of Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell address on Friday left markets reeling. He stated that the central bank is focused on getting inflation back down to around 2%.

His address at the Jackson Hole symposium made it clear that the Fed expects growth to slow as a result of their tightening and that households will feel some pain in the process. The confusion around his remarks of the current rate being neutral appear to have been addressed.

 

DAX 40 TECHNICAL ANALYSIS

The price action on Friday has created a Bearish Engulfing Candlestick and it may suggest that there could be further downside pressure emerge.

The negative gradients on the 55-, 100- and 200-day simple moving averages (SMA) may indicate bearish momentum is evolving.

Support might be at July lows of 12425 or 12367 while topside resistance could be offered at 13970.

    • Hi @greenscorpio1000 Unfortunately we do not have this feature on the mobile app. You can only access the Swap rates on the web platform. The screenshot attached is an indication of todays rate (now at -2.67) which will be a charge on the account. Please note that open positions held through 10pm (UK time) on Fridays will be adjusted for three days’ worth of funding to cover the weekend. All the best, O.D
    • Recent commentary from a number of high-profile Federal Reserve members indicates their willingness to keep up the pressure on fighting inflation.   The incoming consumer price inflation (CPI) data on Thursday will be key and may surprise on the upside as has been the case for much of this year. IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor looks at EUR/USD.          
    • Market data to trade the week starting 10 October: US earnings; US CPI For equity traders it’s the start of another period of intense activity as third quarter earnings begin to be released. IG technical analyst, Axel Rudolph FSTA, looks at the chart of JP Morgan (JPM) as an opener. Axel also examines a trade around US inflation and chooses to analyse the S&P 500.
