Fresh technicals on the Wall Street 30



From record highs a week ago to the markets selling-off and driving the U.S 10 year higher seem to be of little concern to the U.S Fed Chair Powell.

In Tuesday’s Congress hearing Powell told Congress that rising bond yields was a sign that the market is confident in the pandemic recovery. He also said the economy is a long way from its employment and inflation goals and that interest rates would stay low for the foreseeable future.

Global markets were also feeling the pressure even as U.S bond yields start to stabilize in early Wednesday trade. The Asian market moved lower due to falling tech stocks as soaring equity valuations come into focus after the recent bond market gains.

Here is what’s expected this week:

The Wall Street 30 Technical Analysis


We have cleaned up the WS30 chart and we are looking at two possible scenarios. One would be if the price action moved higher from positive economic news events such as stimulus. The other is if the negative sentiment increases and the sell-off continues, we will look at a possible short target.

There is a defined support zone (blue box) which traders should take note of on the 4H chart which could send prices higher and could also offer great buying opportunities. If our support level at 31224 does not hold then we might possibly see the 30833 level in play.

  • Our possible price target for the long traders is around 31731 and for the short sellers a possible short target could be 30833.
  • The 50-day SMA (blue line) is above price on the 4H chart and is acting as possible resistance.
  • The Relative Strength Index (RSI) is below the 50 mark and pointing lower.
