Intraday Analysis – SPX500 Breaks Lower

0 32

AUDUSD tests resistance

The Australian dollar weakened after an uptick in July’s unemployment rate. The pair is still struggling to stabilise after it broke below May’s low of 0.6500. 0.6370 is the closest support and the RSI’s oversold situation on the daily chart may cause a limited rebound, giving the sell-off a breathing room. Fresh resistance could be expected at the pivot level of 0.6500 as the bears might be doubling down on the downturn. But in case of a bullish breakout, 0.6600 on the 20-day SMA would be a dividing line.

EURJPY probes support

The Japanese yen recouped some losses over an upbeat July inflation print. On the daily chart, a bullish MA cross after a month-long consolidation is a sign that buyers have regained control of the direction. As the rally extends, more trend followers may join and push towards the milestone at 160.00. Zooming into the hourly chart, 157.70 has been an accumulation ground offering steady support to the single currency. Further down, 156.70 on the 30-day SMA would be a major floor to keep the impetus intact.

SPX 500 breaks major floor

The S&P 500 plunges as the prospect of prolonged high rates sends US Treasury yields to a 10-month high. The index barely hovered above the daily support of 4390 and a lack of bids signalled that the path of least resistance would be down, stalling the momentum from the daily chart’s perspective, and putting the bulls on the defensive. As the RSI tanks into the oversold area, 4330 is the level to see if the price could stabilise or a broader liquidation could follow suit leading to 4200. 4400 has become a fresh resistance overhead.
