Technical Analysis – US 30 index flies at new all-time highs

Posted on July 12, 2019 at 11:47 am GMT

The US 30 index has been in a flying mode over the last couple of days, resting near a fresh all-time high of 27,183.82. The flat momentum in the MACD, which trends above its trigger line, signals that fresh record highs can be achieved but the volatility in the price would weaken. Still, the RSI warns that the market is approaching overbought territory and hence downside corrections cannot be ruled out. Jumping above the latest record high, the index could hit the 161.8% [..]

Technical Analysis – US 30 index flirts with new record peak

Posted on July 1, 2019 at 12:45 pm GMT

The US 30 stock index is currently challenging June’s peak of 26,907 but the positive momentum in the MACD, which trends above its trigger line, signals that a new record high could be achievable as well in the next few sessions. Still, the RSI warns that the market is approaching overbought territory and hence downside corrections cannot be ruled out. Jumping above the 26,907 resistance level, the bulls would aim to test the uncharted area between 27,000 and 27,500. Otherwise, if the market [..]

Specter of trade war returns to haunt markets – Special Report

Posted on May 9, 2019 at 2:43 pm GMT

Investor attention has turned back to trade, as the US considers whether to launch another round of tariffs on China early on Friday (04:00 GMT). If tariffs are indeed increased, that would probably send stock markets plunging as investors brace for China’s retaliation, or worse yet for a breakdown in the talks. In the bigger picture though, the most likely endgame is still that a deal will ultimately be reached. After months of optimistic comments from both the US and [..]

Technical Analysis – US 30 index eases below 6-month high; indicators suggest bearish bias

Posted on May 3, 2019 at 11:13 am GMT

The US 30 index is trading below the six-month high of 26,712, remaining well above the ‘golden cross’ between the 50- and 200-day simple moving averages (SMAs). The index is on the back foot and the technical indicators suggest that the market could ease a little bit in the short-term; the MACD is easing in the positive zone, while the stochastic is approaching the oversold zone. In case of a correction lower, preliminary support may be initially found in the crossroads of the 50-day SMA and the blue [..]

US Open Preview – Equities retreat amid risk-off tones; aussie softens ahead of RBA decision

Posted on July 2, 2018 at 11:26 am GMT

Here are the latest developments in global markets: FOREX: Dollar/yen traded at 110.75 (+0.08%) on Monday, giving back most of the gains it posted earlier in the session when it briefly touched a one-month high of 111.05, with the yen failing to capitalize substantially on the broader risk-off mood seen in other asset classes, like equities. Meanwhile, the dollar index was up by 0.15% at 94.77. Euro/dollar was down by 0.35%, hovering just above 1.1640 as concerns of a political crisis [..]
