The three major U.S. stock indexes set a record closing high for the second day in a row. During this interval, focus on the performance and the Federal Reserve Meetings.
With these three major U.S. stock indexes setting a record closing high – in two consecutive trading days since Monday – investors were optimistic before a series of technology and Internet companies announced their earnings this week. Simultaneously, the market is under pressure caused by the cautious sentiment before the FOMC Meeting.
According to Refinitiv’s data, most of the released second-quarter earnings have so far easily exceeded analysts’ expectations, pushing up already high growth expectations for the second quarter.
Tim Ghriskey, chief investment strategist at Inverness Counsel LLC, said: “We continue to see surprises. Even if there is a lot of optimism before the earnings season, and estimates are raised, we still see corporate performance exceeding these expectations.”
“As we enter the peak of the earnings season, there will be some industrial companies and more cyclical companies releasing performance. It is interesting to not only look at how much their business rebounds, but to also look at these issues. That is, the impact of inflation and soaring prices posted on them.”
The Fed’s two-day meeting will begin on Tuesday, 27th July, 2021. Everyone is most probably concerned about whether the Fed will address new concerns about high inflation at the end of the meeting on Wednesday.
(US30, 1-hour chart)
Today, the Dow stresses on the support of the Bollinger Band middle rail. If the Dow moves above the Bollinger Band middle rail, it should prove stronger for many parties. Meanwhile, focus on maintaining the idea of taking advantage of the trend.
When the Dow is under the Bollinger Band middle rail, it will further open room for correction. In addition, pay attention to the supporting strength of the 34870 and 34673 positions.
