Technical Analysis

S&P 500

Fed incentives do not allow the US stock market to panic, despite signs of the start of the second wave of COVID-19. Jerome Powell prolonged incentives through 2022 at the end of last week.

The index chart is trading above the support level, in addition, recent asset movements resemble the appearance of the continuation of the “flag” trend. A technical look at the situation suggests a likely continuation of the bull trend.


The currency pair is quoted near the strategic resistance level of 0.88000. Perhaps, until the price fixes on it, it is better to stick to predictions of a lower value.


We expect that the fall in quotations will continue. Traders should take advantage of the lack of support levels. The closest at 0.92000.
