NAS100 Eyes 16K Ahead of Tesla & Netflix Q2 Results

  • NAS100

NAS100 Analysis

Last week's data showed a significant deceleration in headline CPI inflation, while the stickier core also eased notably. Markets had never really embraced the 50 bps worth of hikes, as implied by the Fed's latest projections, expecting only one 0.25% increase later this month. After the CPI report, they seem to be focusing on the timing and extent of cuts.

NAS100 benefited from the optimistic policy expectations and extended its gains to new 2023 highs this week. This has brought it closer to the 16K handle, although the 2021 record highs (16,770) may prove elusive in the near term.

With the Fed's quite period in deploy and a relatively light economic calendar, all eyes will be on the new earnings season. The EV King Tesla Motors reports on Wednesday, after having already announced record Q2 deliveries. Streaming pioneer Netflix releases its results on the same day, with progress on the ad-supported tier and password crackdown, being some of the focal points.

NAS100 is contained today ahead of the earnings and next week's Fed decision. Investors may be overly optimistic around the monetary path though, as strong labor market and robust economic growth call for prolonged restrictive stance. From a technical prospective the advance of NAS100 looks stretched and pressure back to 15,301 would be reasonable, although deeper correction below the EMA200 (14,934-10) would require a significant deterioration in sentiment.
