The shares of Bank of America, the largest financial conglomerate in the US, are moving within the corrective trend of around 34.

On the daily chart, the price has left the global downward channel with dynamic boundaries at 27 – 33 and is trying to stay within the corrective trend that began after overcoming the initial 23.6% Fibonacci correction at 34.7. On the four-hour chart, it is seen that the upward impulse has high prospects for implementation. However, they are relevant only after the quotes reconsolidation above 34.70.

GBPUSD - Quotes have overcome all obstacles on the way to the 2020 minimum​

Inflation in the UK reached 10.1% in annual terms, and the Nationwide house price index in August was 10.0%, and over the winter period, according to many analysts, they can grow even more. In addition, the yield of 10-year British bonds increased by more than 90 basis points, and 2-year securities — by 100 basis points.

An additional negative factor for the pound remains the political uncertainty caused by the election of a new leader of the Conservative Party and the Prime Minister of the country. Foreign Minister Liz Truss and former Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak are running for the post, and the name of the winner will be announced early next week. The reaction of the British currency to the results can be unpredictable, so investors are currently continuing to monitor the rhetoric of both candidates.

In turn, the USD is strengthening due to the tightening of the monetary policy of the US Fed. Investors' attention will be focused on the August data on changes in the number of people employed in the non-agricultural sector, which will be published on Friday at 14:30 (GMT+2). It is expected that the indicator will be adjusted from 528.0K to 300.0K. If the actual value turns out to be close to the forecast or exceeds it, then the USD is likely to continue to strengthen.

The long-term trend is downward. Market participants have broken down the support area of 1.1768–1.1695 and the next target is to update the 2020 minimum in the area of 1.1440.

Within the framework of the mid–term downtrend, market participants have reached the target zone 2 (1.1572–1.1536), in the event of a breakdown of which the decline is likely to continue with a target in target zone 3 (1.1212-1.1176). The key resistance of the trend is shifting to 1.1964–1.1928.

Resistance levels: 1.1695, 1.1768 | Support levels: 1.144, 1.13​

Shares of Visa, America's largest multinational payment services company, are correcting at 198.

On the daily chart, a global Triangle pattern with dynamically narrowing boundaries at 185 – 217 is developing, and at the moment, the price is heading towards the support line. On the four-hour chart, it is seen that the even down wave has a high potential for implementation since the only serious obstacle in the form of support around 200 has already been overcome by now, and quotes have headed towards the support line around 185.

NI 225 - Japanese bond market continues strong growth​

The asset loses value after the publication of data on household spending, reflecting a decrease of 1.4% in monthly terms. Nevertheless, tomorrow the direction of movement of quotations may change after the statistics on the gross domestic product (GDP) of Japan are presented. Preliminary estimates are quite optimistic: analysts assume that the indicator will add 0.7% in Q2, thereby supporting the growth of annual GDP by 2.9% compared to the previous estimate of 2.2%.

In the domestic bond market, an auction was held this week to place long-term 30-year stocks at a rate of 1.235%, exceeding the previous 1.119%, which confirms a serious trend towards strengthening the debt market. As for the current dynamics, 5-year treasury securities added 50.00%, 9-year ones — 7.92%, and global 20-year ones — 3.76%.

Walmart​

On the 4-hour chart, the uptrend has a high chance of continuation as the underlying Fibonacci 38.2% retracement at 134.20 was easily overcome. The next resistance is an intermediate Fibonacci 50.0% correction at 139.3, which will become the target for local growth.

Shares of Pfizer, the largest US pharmaceutical company, are trading around 48. On the daily chart, a global corrective trend is forming, and the price is clamped within the Triangle pattern with dynamic boundaries of 45 – 51.

On the four-hour chart, it is seen that the local decline ended with the support line at 45, after which a reversal was formed, and the quotes of the trading instrument are heading towards the resistance line at 50.3. Taking into account the lengths of local waves, the moment of the pattern implementation will not come soon, and the asset is expected to decline after the end of the current upward impulse.

CAC 40 - French stock market continues to decline​

Weak Friday statistics acted as a driver of the instrument's decline. The French Manufacturing PMI in September fell from 50.6 points to 47.8 points, and the Services PMI was 53.0 points. In turn, the Manufacturing PMI of the eurozone fell from 49.6 points to 48.5 points, which led to a correction of the Composite PMI from 48.9 points to 48.2 points.

The upward dynamics in the domestic bond market continues. Today, auctions will be held to place short-term bills, the rate on which may exceed the previous one. In turn, the popular 10-year bonds are trading at a rate of 2.597%, exceeding the 2.442% shown last week. Global 20-year securities continue to grow, and the rate on them exceeded the peak values of mid-summer at the level of 2.724%, amounting to 2.754%.

DAX 40 - German stock market remains under pressure​

Despite the fact that the leading stock indicators of the Eurozone showed strong growth in yesterday's trading, the German market index was able to interrupt its global decline only briefly, and now the DAX 40 is correcting down, trading at 12140.

The upward dynamics was a reaction to the rhetoric of the President of the European Central Bank (ECB) Christine Lagarde, who announced an increase in interest rates at at least three subsequent meetings of the regulator. At the same time, the GfK Group published October data on the indicator of Consumer Confidence in Germany, which is the leading indicator. The value turned out to be the worst in the history of observations, dropping to -42.5 points from -36.8 points in September, which was the main reason for the negative dynamics of the DAX 40 index.

Nasdaq 100 - Technical analysis​

Currently, the instrument is attempting a correction, but for its serious development, the price will have to consolidate above the resistance zone 11725−11875 (Fibo retracement 50%, Murray [2/8]). In this case, the upward dynamics will strengthen to the levels of 12500 (Murray [4/8]) and 12812.5 (Murray [5/8], Fibo retracement 38.2%), however, if the reverse consolidation is below the level of 11250 (Murray [0/8]), the decline may resume in the area of 10937.5 (Murray [-1/8]) and 10625 (Murray [-2/8], Fibo retracement 61.8%).

Technical indicators signal the continuation of the downward trend: the Bollinger Bands are directed downwards, the MACD histogram is stable in the negative zone, while the Stochastic has reversed upwards, not excluding the continuation of corrective growth, but its potential is seen to be limited.

IBM gives in to negative pressures​

IBM's stock skidded in the intraday levels after the company announced an investment of $20 million in New York in PC devices, hybrid cloud services, AI, and quantum computers, with the stock sliding 2.79%, and settling at 122.23, with trading volumes surpassing 5 million shares, above 10-day averages of 4.4 million shares.

Technically, the stock is hurt by negative pressure from the 50-day SMA, while hurt by piercing the upward trend line recently in the short term, as the RSI reached overbought levels. Therefore we expect more losses for the stock, targeting the first resistance at 118.80, provided the resistance of 126.30 held on.

Expected trend for today: Bearish

DAX 40 - German stock market corrects upwards​

The upward dynamics is fixed against the background of the publication of corporate reports and strong macroeconomic statistics. The index of Economic Expectations in Germany from the Center for European Economic Research (ZEW) corrected to -59.2 points from -61.9 points earlier, and this was the first increase in the index since June. In turn, shares of automakers are actively adding in value after the release of a report on car sales in the EU, which showed growth in September by 9.6% compared to last year. This may be a signal for the start of the recovery of the auto industry after 13 months of stagnation.

S & P 500 - The US stock market is trying to recover​

At the moment, major market participants are publishing corporate financial statements, which are not as positive as experts expected. According to the analytical agency Refinitiv, the profit of 88 companies that reported for the past quarter decreased by an average of 2.6%. The biggest loser on Friday was stocks of Snap Inc., owner of the Snapchat, which shed more than 30.0% amid historically low revenue growth of 6.0% year-on-year. The focus of increased attention of investors is also Twitter Inc., in which the administration of the President of the United States showed interest in terms of initiating possible checks. Telecom operator Verizon Inc., which reported a 24.0% drop in third-quarter net income, is also trading below the market.

FTSE 100 - Results of the elections in the UK pushed the index up​

The day before, Rishi Sunak was appointed the new Prime Minister and head of the Conservative Party with 178 of the 355 members of the Conservative faction in the House of Commons having voted for him. The official managed the British economy during the coronavirus pandemic and analysts believe that he is able to lead the country out of the current crisis. Probably, this news has already been taken into account by the market, since even the negative effect of the publication of a report on business activity, which showed a decrease from 48.4 points to 45.8 points in the Manufacturing sector and from 50 points to 47.5 points in the Services sector could not put pressure on the dynamics of the pound.

S&P 500 - US stock market continues to recover​

The American market continues to correct against the backdrop of corporate reporting and positive expectations of investors regarding a possible reduction in inflation. The S&P 500 is currently trading at 3898.

Experts predict a slowdown in consumer price growth in the US, which will allow the stock market to continue its upward correction. Mike Wilson, a leading analyst at Morgan Stanley banking holding, believes that against this background, S&P 500 quotes may overcome 4100.0 in the near future, as the M2 money supply has fallen sharply over the past month. The analyst is confident that the results of tomorrow's meeting of the US Federal Reserve will also be a catalyst for the upward dynamics in the asset, at which, most likely, a decision will be made on the next increase in interest rates by 75 basis points.
