S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 Latest – Bearish Sentiment Prevails Ahead of the Fed


Recommended Posts

S&P 500 AND NASDAQ 100 – TECHNICAL FORECASTS AND ANALYSIS

  • S&P 500 continues to respect the longer-term downtrend.
  • Nasdaq 100 looking to invalidate a month-old bull flag formation.

Markets week ahead: Nasdaq 100, S&P 500, US dollar, gold, Fed, China PMI,  volatility

The S&P 500 made a notable break lower on Tuesday, failing to hold onto the recent trend support, the 20-day moving average, and the psychological level at 4,000. All these indicators now turn to short-term resistance, blocking the way for the indices to move appreciably higher. Traders are now expected to move towards the sidelines until next week’s main event, the FOMC policy decision on Wednesday. The Federal Reserve is expected to increase rates by 50 basis points - after having hiked rates by 75 basis points at the last four meetings – and will give the markets their latest thoughts on inflation, growth, and the labor market. Next week’s press conference by Fed chair Jerome Powell will hold the key to market direction going into the year-end.

The Nasdaq 100 is trading at a fresh two-week low and is struggling to hold onto a month-old bullish flag formation. Recent data suggesting that the US economy is holding up better than expected has pushed interest rate hike expectations higher, damaging the tech sector. A break lower and back below the 50-dma could open the way for the Nasdaq to retrace all of the November 10 candle back down to 10,808. As with the S&P, next week’s Fed decision will be key.
