Prospects of U.S. Rate Cut Rising

June 13, 2019

U.S. Stock Market


U.S. indices traded lower on Wednesday, with bank stocks declining as prospects of a U.S. interest rate cut rose and energy shares tumbled along with Oil prices. The Dow Jones fell by 0.17%, the S&P 500 dropped 0.21%, and the NASDAQ lost 0.38% of its value. Technically, according to the 1-hour chart, the S&P is trading above a bullish trend line. This could push it higher towards 2,950, while falling below the line may start a strong reversal in the direction of 2,740.

Apple (AAPL)

Last : 194.19


Apple shares rose, closing at $194.19. On the 1-hour chart, the stock is positive, trading above the bullish trend line. As long as it stays there, we might see a rise towards $200.00 but crossing below the line may force it down in the direction of $188.00.

Resistance 196.00 198.00 200.00
Support 192.00 190.00 188.00

U.S. Dollar (USD)


The U.S. dollar pared back earlier gains after tame inflation data supported the case for the Federal Reserve to cut interest rates.


Last : 1,333


Gold rose during Wednesday’s trading on the back of data showing that U.S. consumer prices barely rose in May, increasing pressure on the Federal Reserve to cut interest rates. On the 2-hour chart, the yellow metal is trading above the 20-day Moving Average with the RSI indicator above 50. This should push the price up to around $1,342 but breaking below the SMA could start a negative trend towards $1,326.

Support 1,330 1,328 1,326

Last : 51.11


Crude Oil fell, closing at $51.11. On the 4-hour chart, black gold is trading above the support at $50.50. This may push the price up towards $52.50, although dipping below the line could push it down to around $49.50.
