Indices Trying to Recuperate After the Dive Following FED’s Meeting
Skerdian Meta • 1 min read
Yesterday the USD turned slightly bullish after the FED hiked interest rates. The only other currency which turned even more bullish was the Japanese Yen which received some decent bids since the market was left a bit confused regarding the pace of the future rate hikes from the FED.
As a result of this uncertainty, indices which were open for trading during the night fell lower while other indices which were closed for trading opened with a gap lower this morning. S&P 500 fell from 2,935 at the top to 2,907, Dow Jones declined from 26,600 to around 26,360, while DAX30 fell from 12,370 to 12,260.
But right now indexes are trying to recuperate all losses. They bottomed out a few hours ago and started a reverse as the USD reversed a bit lower as well during the European session.
I was thinking about buying DAX this morning, but it pierced the 200 SMA which has been providing support during this week on the daily chart. Although, as you can see, DAX is forming a bullish reversing chart setup. It formed a doji candlestick on the H4 chart and the current candlestick looks pretty bullish.
Now DAX is headed for the top of the range. The top of the range is defined by the 200 SMA (purple) which has been a strong resistance indicator for about a week. We can’t go long right now since the risk/reward ratio is not very enticing, so it seems that we have missed this chance.
