- Date: February 14, 2024


- Pivot Point: 17,561.69


Trade Direction: BEARISH


- Trade Confidence: Moderate - The recent hotter-than-expected U.S. inflation data has dampened the prospects of an early rate cut by the Fed, which typically has a negative impact on stock indices like the NASDAQ 100. The underlying price pressure not rising as much as feared in the UK could indicate less aggressive policy easing, impacting investor sentiment negatively.


Previous Day's Trend Analysis

- Moving Averages (MA): If the index is trending below key moving averages, it would suggest a bearish trend continuation.

- Ichimoku Cloud: Trading below the Ichimoku Cloud would signal bearish sentiment.

- Relative Strength Index (RSI): An RSI trending towards the oversold territory could indicate potential for a pullback, but remains bearish in the near term.

- Bollinger Bands: Price movement towards the lower Bollinger Band would confirm bearish momentum.

- MACD: A bearish MACD crossover would support the bearish signal.

- Volume Oscillator: Declining volume could signify less buying interest.

2nd Target (2nd Support): Extended move below the pivot point

3rd Target (3rd Support): Potential support levels identified from recent lows


❌ Stop Loss Guidelines

- Sell: Stop loss set above recent highs or the pivot point to limit potential upside risk.


Suggestion

- Initiate a short position below the pivot point, aiming for the first support target, with a stop loss above the pivot to manage risk. Monitor for bearish confirmation from technical indicators.

FTSE 100

Asset: UK100 (FTSE 100)


Date: February 14, 2024


Pivot Point: 7,500.87


Trade Direction: BULLISH

Trade Confidence: Moderate - Despite the recent bearish trend, the lower-than-expected inflation data may act as a catalyst for a bullish reversal. With inflation not rising as much as anticipated, there could be an increased likelihood of monetary policy easing, which is typically positive for equities.


Previous Day's Trend Analysis:

The FTSE 100 showed a bearish trend, but the fundamental change in inflation expectations may alter market sentiment, potentially leading to a trend reversal.

Volatility: ATR indicates moderate volatility, allowing for potential sharp movements in response to changing sentiment.

Moving Averages (MA): The index's position relative to moving averages may shift if the market reacts positively to the inflation news.

Ichimoku Cloud: While currently trading below the Ichimoku Cloud, a shift in market sentiment could drive the index above it, signaling a bullish trend.

RSI: If the RSI turns upwards from near-oversold levels, it may indicate increasing bullish momentum.

Bollinger Bands: A move towards the upper band could occur if the market reacts positively to the inflation news.

MACD: Any upward crossover of the MACD line above the signal line could confirm increasing bullish momentum.

Volume Oscillator: An increase in buying volume would be needed to confirm a bullish reversal.


🎯 Profit Targets:

Buy:

1st Target (1st Resistance): 7,520.00

2nd Target (2nd Resistance): 7,540.00

3rd Target (3rd Resistance): 7,560.00


❌ Stop Loss Guidelines:

Buy: Setting a stop loss below the recent low around 7,490.00 could help mitigate the risk if the market doesn't respond bullishly to the inflation data.


Suggestion:

Consider taking a long position due to the potential for a market sentiment shift following the inflation news. Set profit targets and a stop loss as suggested. Keep an eye on market reaction to the inflation data and be prepared to adjust the strategy if the expected bullish reversal does not materialize.


Viewpoint Recap:

The UK100's current technical setup, combined with the fundamental shift due to lower-than-expected inflation, suggests a possible bullish reversal for today's session. The trade direction is bullish with moderate confidence, relying on the market's interpretation of the inflation data as a signal for potential easing by the Bank of England.
