What To Expect!
Who’s In The Nasdaq And What Are They Doing?
Hey traders, so last week was really “Bearish with lot of annoying ranges”.. The major structure though, bearish. That didn’t stop the bulls from just messing around with “#ME!”. Pretty annoying.. Haha. Anyway, the plan was bearish until there was a reason to buy—that’s what I did. Although, Tuesday changed that plan.
Before I dive into that, These were my exact words for last week—“.. since all levels are pointing downwards, even the relative strength index are all below 50%, I’ll be taking more of sells till there’s a change in the trend. If the Nasdaq100 gives us a higher-low instead of lower-low, then BUYS!!!..”
Nasdaq100 High Impact News For 18th-22th Of April, 2022
On Monday 18th of April, 2022. There will be no high impact news for this guy. However, Tuesday the 19th, by 13:30 GMT—We’ve got “The Building Permits”. The Building Permits measures the change in the number of new building permits issued by the government. Building permits are a key indicator of demand in the housing market. A higher than expected reading should be taken as positive/bullish for the USD, while a lower than expected reading should be taken as negative/bearish for the USD.
Wednesday, 20th April,2022. By 15:00 GMT, The gist is Existing Home sales. A brief: Existing Home Sales measures the change in the annualized number of existing residential buildings that were sold during the previous month. This report helps to gauge the strength of the U.S. housing market and is a key indicator of overall economic strength. A higher than expected reading should be taken as positive/bullish for the USD, while a lower than expected reading should be taken as negative/bearish for the USD.
Still Wednesday and the crude oil inventories holds by 15:30 GMT. A Brief: The Energy Information Administration’s (EIA) Crude Oil Inventories measures the weekly change in the number of barrels of commercial crude oil held by US firms. The level of inventories influences the price of petroleum products, which can have an impact on inflation. If the increase in crude inventories is more than expected, it implies weaker demand and is bearish for crude prices. The same can be said if a decline in inventories is less than expected. If the increase in crude is less than expected, it implies greater demand and is bullish for crude prices. The same can be said if a decline in inventories is more than expected.
Further-more, Thursday the 21st of April, 2022. Around 13:30 GMT, My all time favorite (only because it’s frequent) will take place. Here’s a brief incase you forgot—Initial Jobless Claims measures the number of individuals who filed for unemployment insurance for the first time during the past week. This is the earliest U.S. economic data, but the market impact varies from week to week. A higher than expected reading should be taken as negative/bearish for the USD, while a lower than expected reading should be taken as positive/bullish for the USD.
Same day; same time is the Philadelphia Federal Reserve. The Philadelphia Federal Reserve Manufacturing Index rates the relative level of general business conditions in Philadelphia. A level above zero on the index indicates improving conditions; below indicates worsening conditions. The data is compiled from a survey of about 250 manufacturers in the Philadelphia Federal Reserve district. A higher than expected reading should be taken as positive/bullish for the USD, while a lower than expected reading should be taken as negative/bearish for the USD.
Finally, same day but by 16:00 and 18:00 respectively. We’ll be having a back-to-back FED meeting. Here’s a brief—Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell (Feb. 2018 – Feb. 2022) is to speak. As head of the Fed, which controls short term interest rates, he has more influence over the U.S. dollar’s value than any other person. Traders closely watch his speeches as they are often used to drop hints regarding future monetary policy.
