S&P 500 Continues To Trade Below $5000 Ahead Of FOMC Minutes And Nvidia Earnings

S&P 500 bulls are struggling to rebound after sliding below the $5000 psychological level amid the upcoming Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) minutes and Nvidia earnings.

Both events have the potential to impact the US’ leading market index.

  • Hawkish FOMC may suggest higher-for-longer interest rates which could translate into US500 moving lower
  • Dovish FOMC may signal the potential for the interest rates to be lowered sooner. This could potentially translate into US500 moving higher

Higher-than-expected NVIDIA (US’s leading semiconductor maker) earnings could boost investor’s confidence in a broader technology sector, potentially leading to an upward momentum in the US500.

However, lower-than-expected results may dampen investor sentiment, which may potentially translate into US500 moving lower.

On the technical side …

  • The current price is above all 3 key moving averages (21,50 & 100-period SMAs) may suggest a strong bullish momentum.
  • The RSI is at ~55.87, which is within the neutral territory (<30 – oversold, >70 – overbought). This underscores the market’s current state of uncertainty as investors wait for the upcoming data.
  • THE MACD is in the positive territory (~49.74), however, it is still below the signal line (~61.64) which could indicate a lack of strong directional bias.
