US30 - H4

The index managed to end its four-week losses in an emphatic way, but the current week has started on the back foot. This is to a large extent, due to fresh Omicron jitters and the prospects of faster QE tapering from the Fed.

Wednesday's monetary policy decision can affect the US stock markets, while the economic calendar features more releases from the US, starting today with the Producer Price index.

US30 extends its losses today. testing key technical levels. In particular, the 23.6% Fibonacci of the December low/high ascend (35,614) - which had supported it over the previous days - and the upper border of the Daily Ichimoku Cloud.

A breach can open the door towards 38.2% Fibonacci (35,300-35,296) which coincides with the ascending trend-line form this month's lows. This area however also includes the EMA200, so there are technical opportunities for it to react.

As long as US30 can keep above the EMA200, the road towards last week's highs (36,128) is open, but a catalyst will likely be required for such moves that will bring the record highs back into the spotlight (36,570).
