Uninspiring Jobs Data Dulls the Dollar’s Edge

June 10, 2019

U.S. Stock Market


U.S. stocks traded higher after May’s weak jobs report increased speculation that the Federal Reserve will cut interest rates. The Dow Jones rose by 1.02%, the S&P 500 was up 1.05%, and the NASDAQ added 1.66% to its value. Technically, according to the 4-hour chart, the NASDAQ is trading above the support at 7,290. As long as this remains the case, a rise towards 7,550 can be expected. However, breaking below the line may lead to a small retracement back to around 7,100.

Amazon (AMZN)

Last : 1,803.97


Amazon shares rose 2.83%, closing at $1,803.97. On the 1-hour chart, the stock is holding below a bearish trend line, which may push the price down to around $1,700. However, with the ADX indicator above 20, it is widely expected to breach above the line soon and continue climbing towards $1,900.
