The market remains cautiously optimistic as the U.S earnings season unfolds with precious metals shining bright in July. An increase in coronavirus cases are putting a damper on U.S Equity Futures in early Wednesday trade with Trump warning that things will get worse before they get better.
In this note you will find the technical analysis from our Market Analyst, Barry Dumas:
The Wall Street 30 Technical Analysis
The market will keep an eye out on the next planned stimulus package set to roll out soon as this might be an opportune moment for the Wall Street 30 and S&P 500 to possibly regain all-time highs.
The price action on the Wall Street 30 Index has been whipsawing around our 26721 (pink line) level of interest which needs to hold to support a move higher as mentioned in our previous WS30 note.
We might see extended periods of volatility during July as sentiment will be driven by company earnings, political factors and COVID-19 pandemic vaccine news.
Technical points to look out for on the Daily Wall Street 30:
- The price action needs to stay above the 26721 level of interest (pink line) which is acting as support now. We might see a short term move lower to the 50-day SMA.
- The 50-day SMA (blue line) is still pointing higher and acting as support to the price action and now also remains an indicator of interest to keep an eye on.
- The Relative Strength Index (RSI) has moved above the midpoint (50). But we might see it move lower after the trendline pullback.
