Trends, Support, and Resistance
The Nasdaq fell back below the 21d EMA .
If the index would return to the trend line from the 6/16 low, that would require a +4.53% gain.
The gain required to get back to the five-day trend line is only slightly better, requiring a +3.69% gain.
If the one-day trend line were to continue into Wednesday, that would mean another -4.14% decline.
Big tech and growth stocks took another hit as Consumer Confidence dips on inflation worries. The US Dollar’s continued strength relative to other currencies is also a headwind for large multinationals who need to repatriate a large portion of their revenues, bringing the forecast for top line and bottom line performance down. The lower market outlook for US companies is reflected in the widening gap between Corporate bond yields and Treasury bond yields.
