US stocks fell the most in a month, with the S&P 500 index hit its biggest drop in nearly a month on Friday, 17 September 2021. At the same time, investors are evaluating the resilience of the global recovery amid concerns about the Delta virus strain and risks from Asia.
The 0.9% drop in the S&P 500 came amid the quarterly expiration of options and futures, which can trigger volatility.
The materials, utilities, and technology sectors pushed the benchmark index into the red, erasing gains from earlier in the week. The index dipped below its 50-day moving average, a key technical level that has provided support during the previous market selloffs in 2021. The technology-heavy Nasdaq 100 slumped 1.2%, the biggest drop since May.
September is starting off in typical fashion, with stocks struggling to maintain optimism in the face of a likely pending shift in Fed policy, slower growth, and uncomfortably high inflation. The University of Michigan’s preliminary sentiment index showed US consumer sentiment rose slightly in early September, but remained close to a near-decade low, while buying conditions deteriorated to their worst since 1980 because of high prices.
Today, we will be focusing on the 34724 line for the Dow. Currently, it still maintains in a bearish trend. Above, pay attention to the suppression strength of the two positions of 34477 and 34724. Then, focus on the support of the 33811 line.
