    The Nasdaq 100 Index Fell Despite Positive Inflation News


    Yesterday, Consumer Price Index (CPI) values were published, indicating a slowdown in the rate of inflation in the USA. According to ForexFactory:

    → CPI month-on-month: actual = -0.1%, forecast = 0.1%, previous month = 0.0%;

    → CPI year-on-year: actual = 3.0%, forecast = 3.1%, previous month = 3.3%.

    The data confirming the slowdown in inflation raised expectations that the Federal Reserve might lower interest rates as early as September. But why did the Nasdaq 100 (US Tech 100 mini on FXOpen) drop then? Yesterday, the tech stock index fell by over 2.1%, marking its worst day since early May.

    The reason lies in rotation. Investors seem to have shifted their focus from the highly inflated tech stocks since the start of 2024 to other sectors. Approximately 400 companies in the S&P 500 index (US SPX 500 mini on FXOpen) showed growth. Meanwhile, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (Wall Street 30 mini on FXOpen) closed in the green yesterday.

    Bloomberg reports that Kelly Cox from Ritholtz Wealth Management believes this day could be a turning point for the markets. It also serves as a good reminder of the importance of diversification.

    One of the drivers of yesterday's decline was NVDA shares, which fell by more than 5% in a day (we wrote about the bearish behaviour of Nvidia’s price and volumes just the day before).

    What’s next?

    The equal-weighted version of the S&P 500, where stocks like Nvidia have the same weight as Dollar Tree Inc., rose yesterday. This version of the index is less sensitive to the influence of large tech companies, making a case for the rally expanding to other stocks.

    Analysis of USD/JPY: Was There an Intervention?


    Yesterday’s news of slowing inflation in the US sharply weakened the dollar, anticipating the Federal Reserve’s monetary easing. In the first 15 minutes after the data release:

    → EUR/USD rose by approximately 0.45% to the psychological level of 1.09;

    → GBP/USD increased by approximately 0.55%, reaching a 2024 high.

    Conversely, USD/JPY fell, with a more aggressive movement. As the chart shows, the dollar weakened against the yen by about 1.8% in the first 15 minutes after the release. This suggests that amidst the US news, the Bank of Japan intervened to support its currency, which hadn’t fallen below 160 yen per USD since June 26.

    Reuters reports that Tokyo’s chief currency diplomat, Masato Kanda, stated on Friday that authorities would take necessary measures in the currency market but declined to comment on whether they had intervened.

    The Nikkei Index Has Risen To a Two-Month High


    As we reported on 26th June, analysing the Nikkei 225 chart (Japan 225 on FXOpen):

    → The price is in a significant upward trend (shown by the blue channel);

    → The price may continue to rise along the median line.

    Since then, the Nikkei 225 index (Japan 225 on FXOpen) has increased by more than 6%, reaching a yearly high on 10th July above 42,500 points. The price particularly surged on 9-10 July, breaking resistance at 41,160 (formed from the previous peak at the end of March).

    However, the bears made a strong comeback afterwards, pushing the price back to the 41,160 level. Thus:

    → Completely offsetting the gains from 9-10 July;

    → Forming a bearish engulfing pattern spanning 4 candles;

    → Prompting consideration that the breakout above 41,160 was false (a trap for bulls).

    According to Reuters, bearish drivers included technology stocks such as Tokyo Electron, which saw a more than 6% decline in one day, following sell-offs in US technology stocks (as reported on 12th July).

    Sentiment in the Japanese stock market is also influenced by risks of interventions by the Bank of Japan to support the yen.

    Insiders Are Selling Shares of Large Companies


    Yesterday, the S&P 500 stock index (US SPX 500 mini on FXOpen) set another historical high, closing near the 5650 level.

    However, similar records are not observed on the charts of rally leaders from the first half of 2024 – NVDA's price is 8.6% below its historical high, MSFT is 3.1% lower, and GOOGL is 2.6% below its record.

    And this isn't the only cause for concern. Insider sales, as indicated by reports to the SEC, could add to anxieties. For instance:

    → Bezos sold over $900 million worth of AMZN shares;

    → Nvidia board member Mark Stevens continues to sell NVDA shares, as does company CEO Jensen Huang.

    According to Goldman Sachs, fund managers have increased their long positions in US stock index futures to record levels.

    And according to a July survey of fund managers conducted by Bank Of America:

    → Market sentiment remains bullish amid expectations of a Fed rate cut and a soft landing for the economy;

    → Geopolitics now pose the biggest risk to markets, followed by inflation.

    If professional market participants foresee further growth in the stock index, it might not be driven by shares of large companies.

    On June 27, we discussed the bullish "cup and handle" pattern near the $190 level on the AMZN price chart. Since then, bulls have shown the ability to push the price towards the psychological level of $200, but they have not managed to sustain this success.

    The EUR/USD Rate Set a 16-Week High


    According to the EUR/USD chart, the euro to dollar exchange rate yesterday surpassed the peak from early June, rising above 1.092 – the last time the price was at this level was on March 21.

    Bullish sentiments in the market were supported by:

    → Approaching Thursday's meeting of the European Central Bank – it is expected that interest rates will remain unchanged. However, attention will be focused on comments from its president Christine Lagarde regarding the timing of the next interest rate cut.

    → Expectations of rate cuts by the Federal Reserve in September. As Reuters reports, Powell stated yesterday that economic indicators in the US for the second quarter "to some extent bolster the confidence" that inflation is returning to the target level in a sustainable manner.

    As we mentioned in our analytical review of the EUR/USD chart on July 1:
