Technical Analysis


Nvidia has chosen a good moment to announce its Omniverse, as its strong earnings results attracted a lot of attention from big investors. With that and the growth in the company’s stock prices, we believe that Nvidia is in a good position to start this quarter.

While the company’s stock price is spiking now, we expect its growth to be very short-term, so be ready for it to start falling soon.

S&P 500

The index is moving upwards as it rebounds from its earlier losses, and we believe that this tendency will continue for today.


Gold is moving in the upwards-slanted price channel, and we believe that it is going to break out up.
