Market Talk

It's looking almost perfect

The US Fed is focused on lowering inflation and at the same time supporting economic growth, which is helping to keep personal incomes intact.

  • US economic growth has advanced during most of 2022, paving the way for the Fed to fight rising inflation without crashing the economy
  • US inflation has fallen from peak levels
  • US personal incomes remain stable

SPX500 Index technical commentary:

  • Current price on the weekly chart suggests that the index is consolidating the October 2022 low - January 2022 high uptrend advance. In order for the resumption of the previous multi-month uptrend to take place, price would need to clear above the 4,182 resistance which could trigger a prospective advance toward the 4,434 level. Downside below the 4,050s would increase the prospects for the index to resume the January 2022 - October 2022 downtrend.

EUR / GBP bullish conditions in the short term

EUR / GBP  bullish conditions in the short term Source: Tradingview April 21 2023 7:22 UTC

  • EUR / GBP faces resistance at 0.8866 which is spotted at the prevailing trendline resistance above current price (see chart). Despite that, current price remains below the prevailing downward sloping trendline (see chart) momentum indicators suggest that upside price momentum could lift price further higher from the 0.8720 support for a test of the 0.8866 - 0.8880 zone in the short term (14-25 days). Downside risk seen below the 0.8720 support.
