Inflation, interest rates and recession worries become a focal point for investors once again as Asian markets turn lower and Wall Street sees its gains from a day before evaporating.
Recession fears are once again pushed to the foreground as Goldman Sachs also raises its probabilities of a U.S recession to 30% in the next year. Even though this is a low probability of a recession, investors are worried about how far central banks will push attempts to curb record inflation with interest rate hikes. U.K inflation has reached a 40-year high last month of 9.1% with soaring food and beverage prices being the main contributor.
The Wall Street 30 Technical Analysis
With recession fears creeping back into the global economy, we might see all the major global indices push lower for the rest of this week. The bears have taken control over the last week and our new adjusted levels are still relevant as described in our previous Wall Street 30 (WS30) note.
The price action on the WS30 did reached our 29751-support level and prices did rally from there to the major resistance level at 30630. We could see another leg lower from this resistance point and if the 29751-support does not hold, then the 29235 level becomes a focal point.
Volume is decreasing on the 4H chart supporting the downward move as the relative strength index (RSI) also moves lower to oversold levels.
