The week started with risk aversion, emanating from the elevated Covid-19 cases from China and the first related deaths in a long time, which create fears over the economic outlook of the world's largest second economy.
Meanwhile, the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) released its latest forecasts on Tuesday, not expecting a global recession under the central scenario, but does see a slowdown next year. For the United States in particular, it forecasts GDP growth of just 0.5% in 2023, from 1.2% in the previous projections.

Wall Street will be closed on Thursday and Friday will be a half-day, affecting the trading hours of various FXCM products
Sentiment remains fragile and NAS100 comes from a losing week, which creates risk for a breach of the EMA200 (11,460). The daily Ichimoku Cloud that follows could offer support and a catalyst would be required for sub-11,000 moves, whereas 10,437 seems distant at this point.
Despite the poor start to the week, NAS100 looks past risk-factors and above the EMA200 it has the ability to push for fresh November highs (12,080-89), although further advance past 12,468 has a higher degree of difficulty.
