Trump tweets market into biggest sell-off in the past two weeks



The “Tweet Storm” has returned and U.S markets reacted in the sharpest drop in two weeks, after U.S President Trump cancelled talks with Democrats on the stimulus plan. The president’s Tweet stated that negotiations on coronavirus relief will stop until after the elections.

Asian Markets shrugged off Trumps tweets and the MSCI’s broad based index of Asia Pacific shares gained 0.4% to a two-week high while U.S Futures gained momentum Wednesday morning.


The Wall Street 30 Technical Analysis


The price action stayed above the 27155-support level and as discussed in our U.S. Non-Farm Payrolls (NFP) note, price had to move higher to negate the formation of a downtrend.

Price gained momentum after positive stimulus news last week which saw the price action rise to our 28123-resistance level, which needs to be crossed for another leg higher.

If the market cannot shrug off President Trumps outlook and comments on stimulus, then we might see the price action back at the 27155 support soon.


Technical key areas to keep an eye on - WS30 Daily Chart Timeframe


  • The price action needs to close above the 28123-resistance level to support a move higher to our third possible target price of 29390.
  • The 50-day SMA (blue line) is supporting price currently and pointing higher.
  • The Relative Strength Index (RSI) has broken out of the downtrend and is above the 50 level which will be watched closely.
