Stocks Rebound Amid Higher Yields

Author:   |    Publish date:


Stocks rebound amid higher yields. US stocks rebounded sharply higher on Tuesday after sound earnings beats and forward guidance from the healthcare sector. Dow (+1.45%), S&P (+1.61%) and Nasdaq (+2.15%) including Russell (+2.04%) crossed back into the green while bonds were sold off, sending yields higher, with the 10Y benchmark almost piercing the 3.00% mark. King Dollar remains in demand, putting the index flirting with the 101 handle.

In the commodities market, Dollar demand and bleak growth forecast from the IMF sent crude lower to $102.25/bl while gold settled around 30 cents lower than the $1,950/oz minor handle. Elsewhere, iron ore remains in bid around $155.60/tn despite the IMF reports.

In the FX space, Aussie seized the helm of demand in the short and long term accounts alongside Kiwi and Loonie as the safe haven Swiss and Yen synching across all horizons. Dollar demand in the short and medium term pulled back, though remains elevated in the long term.

On Wednesday, markets await the new European sanctions announcement on Russia while looking for earnings reports from Tesla (TSLA), Procter & Gamble (PG), Alcoa (AA), Anthem (ANTM), Lam Research (LRCX), Steel Dynamics (STLD), Equifax (EFX), Kinder Morgan (KMI), United Airlines (UAL) and Baker Hughes (BKR) as well as the latest number on US mortgage application index and existing home sales. EIA petroleum status will be in the spotlight for energy traders.

OUR PICK – No New Stock Pick

Choppy trading ahead. Looking at the chart of the S&P 500 index, price is trading above the 200 and 50 DMA yet below 100 DMA. Current structure puts more risk to the downside with 100 DMA as dynamic resistance and resumption of uptrend is active only when the 4,650 level is broken to the upside. Until then, we are looking for the retest of 200 DMA and the lower bound support around 4,130.
