Yesterday, the Nasdaq Composite opened higher as we took some risk on sentiment following the announcement of a de-escalation between Iran and Israel following Iranian retaliation. The market was under pressure at the open as US retail sales far exceeded expectations with positive revisions from previous figures. The data continues to heat up and therefore pushes back expectations for rate cuts. In the second half of the trading session, we learned that Israel intended to retaliate soon, triggering a new wave of de-risking flows that led to key technical breakouts exacerbating the sell-off.

On the daily chart, we can see that the Nasdaq Composite sold off to the first key support level at 15929 following strong US retail sales and geopolitical news. This is where we can expect buyers to step in with defined risk below the level to position themselves for a rally to a new all-time high. Sellers, on the other hand, will want to see the price fall to increase bearish bets until the next support at 15453.

On the hourly chart we can see that we now have a trendline defining the current bearish momentum where we can find the confluence of the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level and the blue 8 moving average. It is there that we can expect sellers to step in with defined risk above the trendline to position themselves at new lows. Buyers, on the other hand, will want to see the price move higher to increase bullish bets to a new all-time high.

Events to come

This week is a bit empty on the data front with only one notable report available on Thursday as we get the latest US jobless claims numbers. Also be wary of hawkish signals from Fed speakers throughout the week and from Fed Chair Powell today.
