Summary: Big names; Apple, Microsoft, Meta, Amazon, Alphabet, Nvidia and Tesla have either turned bearish or are drawing top and reversal patterns that are on the brink of confirmation
Apple failed to close the gap from early August and got hammered yesterday. Despite RSI showing positive sentiment down trend is likely to resume with a potential move down to support area around 170-166.
For Apple to close the gap and reverse to uptrend a close above 191.17 is needed
Microsoft (MSFT) is testing the key resistance at around 335.14. RSI is currently being rejected at the 60 threshold i.e., still in negative sentiment. MSFT could be hit by increased selling pressure towards key strong support at around 312.29. A close below is likely to send MSFT lower towards 295-290 support area.
MSFT needs to be closing above 335.14 and RSI closing above 60 for uptrend confirmation. If that scenario plays out a move to previous peak around 366 is in the cards
Meta Strong resistance at around 306.19 needs to be taken out by a daily close above for Meta to confirm an uptrend. RSI showing negative sentiment and needs to close above 60 threshold to reverse to positive.
A probable scenario is for Meta to be caught range bound between 306 and 275 the next 5-8 trading days before break pout. A close below 2741 could fuel a sell-off down to around 230 level with strong support at around 260. A close above 306.19 is likely to fuel a rally towards August peak, possibly higher, around 326
Amazon AMZN still trading above its medium-term rising trend line but the uptrend is weakening, illustrated by the RSI divergence. A close below 131 will confirm bearish trend and could ignite a sell-off that could push AMZN down to 126 -120 short-term.
For uptrend to continue and to be extended a close above 139.97 is needed
Alphabet (GOOG) is still in an uptrend trading in a rising Wedge like pattern. The uptrend is weakening however, illustrated by the RSI divergence.
If GOOG is closing below the lower rising trendline the gap area 127.85-125.70 is likely to be tested. If GOOG is closing the gap i.e., closing below 125.70 it could fuel a sell-off down to around 115.80 – the upper level of the lower gap area. If GOOG is taking out peak at 138.58 there is room up to around 143.85
Nvidia (NVDA) formed a Marubozu candle a few days ago. (Market open price and highest price are almost same level and closing price and lowest price almost same level). Sellers had been in control throughout the (Marubozu) session and still seem to be in control.
Buyers have been failing to close NVDA above its peak at 502.66 which is needed to demolish the top and reversal picture.
If NVDA is closing below 445.60 selling pressure could increase taking it down to support at around 406.30, possibly down to the upper part of the big gap back from May at around 373.50
Tesla (TSLA) seems to having trouble closing above the 55 daily Moving Average and push RSI to close above 60 threshold which means the indicator is still in negative sentiment indicating Tesla is likely to resume downtrend shortly.
A downtrend that could take Tesla down to August lows around 214.
A close above 265.10 will demolish the bearish picture instead confirming uptrend that could lift Tesla back to around 300
The road to a bond bull market is paved, although challenges remain
Is a bond bull market ahead? Inflation still poses a risk for investors, but the moment for increasing duration to your portfolio may be approaching towards the end of the year, when central banks might be forced to cut interest rates.
FX: King dollar and its far-reaching repercussions
The furious rate hike cycle has brought gains in the US dollar, but with stagflation risks in Europe and the UK and weakness in the Chinese economy, USD may have more room to run. But a strong dollar could also have repercussions for US growth, emerging markets and commodity prices.
Equities: Higher cost of capital is getting painful
With the cost of capital rising painfully, stagflation fears are back, illuminating the fragile state of the green transformation, while giving a tailwind to nuclear power, and threatening the growth of AI-related stocks.
Commodity sector supported by peak rates, tight supply focus
With supply tightness not only in energy but all commodities, the momentum in commodity prices may continue, pressuring central banks to lower real rates. That could be a good setup for precious metals, including gold, silver and potentially platinum as well.
As the pandemic showed, even the US Treasury can experience seismic shifts. With the government increasing the pace of issuing bonds to support fiscal spending, the complex Treasury market and regulatory constraints could spark a liquidity event.
The tide has turned for bonds. Given the current yields, bonds have become an attractive investment, with added benefits including lower risk than stocks, increased diversification and a steady stream of income unaffected by economic changes.
