S&P 500 at 23-month lows ahead of CPI data

Recommended Posts

Today’s US consumer price inflation (CPI) data has the potential to steer markets. IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor looks at the S&P 500 and the EUR/USD as two areas that will react to the data when it passes.

One of the big trades on this Thursday is going to be the US inflation data.

Ahead of that we've seen the S&P 500 close at levels last night not seen since November 2020, late in that COVID year when we saw those big declines and the volatility.

Since the record highs we've seen on the S&P 500 going back the 3rd of January this year we've seen a 25.94% drop. Now, yesterday we didn't quite get as low intraday since we were back on Tuesday this week, but the markets closed at those low levels. And indeed you can see already today early doors on the IG platform, we are once again knocking on the door of those lows that we've seen this week with more pressure being applied ahead of the consumer price inflation (CPI) data which is out later on today - a 1:30 p.m. UK time release of the consumer price data in the Unites States.

CPI is expected to rise by 8.1% in September year-on-year (YoY). Now that will be down from the 8.3% we've seen in August. That's the main headline rate. But if you dig deeper and take out the food and energy component parts of that, the core CPI, it's expected to accelerate to 6.5% from 6.3% in August.


Now, some economists are suggesting that we could well see an upside surprise to this. And if we do see an upside surprise, the way to trade this would be on the EUR/USDEUR/USD trade. And if we see an upside surprise, it's likely to see strength of the dollar, in which case we'll see a lower trade here on the EUR/USD.

If you are short on this going into the numbers, your stock would go above the 98 level. We're currently trading at 97 and I think this area down here is a threat at 9536.

If, however, there is a downside surprise to the numbers we could well see weakening in the dollar in which case we'll approach this line of resistance at 9864.

So certainly all to play for at 1:30 p.m. today UK time for the equity indices and also for the foreign exchange markets.

S&P500 dropped when the CPI data was released. Technically I was looking at the descending triangle pattern.

What is a Descending Triangle?
A descending triangle is a bearish chart pattern used in technical analysis that is created by drawing one trend line that connects a series of lower highs and a second horizontal trend line that connects a series of lows.

    • In general, I will start with the fact that I was looking for a cube would be possible to invest money to multiply Some bets, stock exchanges didn't really work for me. I decided to look for something really worthwhile. In general I got to cryptocurrency, studied it for a while and tried to get into it. Then I got interested in all sorts of nft, metaverse, and so on And then I found a quite interesting and fresh project It's called Sabai Ecoverse. There, and you can earn from zero, and multiply the capital. In general, I just started to get into it. Can you also look at and say your opinion, please

    • The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) issued a so-called Wells notice on Coinbase which saw the stock down heavily after-hours last night on Wall Street.    Jeremy Naylor | Analyst, London | Publication date: Thursday 23 March 2023  This is a document indicating that the SEC is preparing to act against some parts of the business. IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor explains that as the story develops, and more is heard, traders will be able to make a better judgment. Coinbase shares plunge The crypto exchange Coinbase fell more than 22% yesterday late in the session, all-sessions on the IG platform, it trades outside of hours, and it was this trading that represented a big drop in the share price. Share price chart Let's take a look at what happened because it explains the situation quite well. We have subsequently this morning seen a little bit of a rebound, but that 22% drop came after the company was issued a so-called Wells notice by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The Wells notice is often one of the final steps before the SEC formally issues charges against the business, generally laying out the framework for what happens next. So we've got this drop that came through last night. We've subsequently seen a little bit of a rise on the session. CNBC said last night that based on discussions with the staff that potentially enforcement actions would relate to aspects of the company's spot market staking service, Coinbase Earn, Coinbase Prime and also the Coinbase Wallet business. Now the SEC is on high alert in the crypto industry in the wake of the failure of FTX. The recent gains we've seen in Coinbase have really all been about what's been happening with Bitcoin. Bitcoin has risen a whopping 47 and three quarter percent from the lows we had back on the 10th of March, all the way up to the highs we saw on Wednesday, yesterday, mid-session before the pullback. It's acting a little bit like a safe haven in the world of the markets. But Coinbase reflected this to some degree. But that knock yesterday was a really big pullback. But the investors are regrouping around the business and see this stock now up all-sessions, up 7% today. Where it'll open remains to be seen, but I suspect we could well see a little bit of a drop at the start later on today on Wall Street.
