Global Equity Monitor: Techno-Fundamental Research & Analysis

Global Equity Monitor: Techno-Fundamental Research & Analysis

Joel Kruger and David Schutz,
  • US equities still well supported above 20-Day SMA
  • UK equities starting to show signs of weakness
  • German equities looking for close back below 20-Day SMA
  • Japanese equities well bid but on the verge of major pullback
  • Australian equities well capped by range highs; deeper setbacks ahead

US30 (Dow)

Global_Equity_Monitor_Techno-Fundamental_Research_body_us30.png, Global Equity Monitor: Techno-Fundamental Research & Analysis

Technical: Remains very well supported on any form of a dip with the 20-Day SMA continuing to prop. However, the market is trading by multi-week highs and daily studies are starting to track in overbought territory to warn of short-term structural shift. But, a close back below the 20-Day SMA will be required to trigger bearish price action and open deeper setbacks.

Fundamental: Markets continue to be well supported, rallying yesterday after setback earlier in the day. Ultralow rates from the Fed are thought to be providing an added push to sentiment. Markets await the impact of US durable goods orders and consumer confidence today. The S&P 500 has climbed 4.2 percent in February, and is heading for its third positive month amid a slew of better than expected economic data out of the US.

UK100 (FTSE)

Global_Equity_Monitor_Techno-Fundamental_Research_body_uk1000.png, Global Equity Monitor: Techno-Fundamental Research & Analysis

Technical: While the trend in this market remains bullish for the time being, we are starting to see signs of a potential bearish reversal with daily studies looking stretched. A close back below the 20-Day SMA will be required to accelerate further and expose more significant support by the January 30 previous higher low at 5,649. A daily close back above 6,000 negates and gives reason for pause.

Fundamental: UK stocks staged a late rally yesterday and continue to be well supported. Retail sales rose in February to their highest in eight months, a UK statistics bureau said today, adding that a jump in food sales masked underlying weakness in the economy. Meanwhile, the UK’s largest homebuilder by market value Persimmon gained the most since 2008 today after announcing a plan to return 1.9 billion pounds to shareholders by 2021.

GER30 (DAX)

Global_Equity_Monitor_Techno-Fundamental_Research_body_ger30.png, Global Equity Monitor: Techno-Fundamental Research & Analysis

Technical: No major signs of reversal just yet despite daily studies tracking into overbought territory on the daily chart. Still, while the up-trend remains intact, there are risks for a significant short-term pullback ahead. Look for a break below the 20-day SMA to confirm short-term shift and open the door for an acceleration of declines. Above 7,000 delays bearish outlook and gives reason for pause.

Fundamental: European stocks rose today as economic confidence in the euro area improved more than expected in February. Germany’s approval of the Greek bailout overnight was also thought to be bolstering sentiment here. Germany has pushed for increased IMF involvement in the bailout, but IMF officials have hesitated to commit.

JPN225 (Nikkei)

Global_Equity_Monitor_Techno-Fundamental_Research_body_jpn225.png, Global Equity Monitor: Techno-Fundamental Research & Analysis

Technical: Daily studies are finally starting to correct from violently overbought levels and we would recommend that bulls proceed with caution over the coming days. From here, short-term risks are tilted to the downside so that technical studies can unwind from these overextended readings. Look for a pullback towards the previous resistance now turned support by the 200-Day SMA in the 9,000 area before considering possibility of a bullish resumption. Selling rallies towards 9,750 is the preferred short-term strategy.

Fundamental:Japanese stocks continued to reach for the skies today, rallying strongly as the Yen pared earlier gains. Stocks have recently climbed sharply on the back of increased quantitative easing from the Bank of Japan. The freefalling Yen has seen its steepest drop in two years, a development which is expected to continue bolstering the outlook of exporters into the coming weeks.

AUS200 (ASX)

Global_Equity_Monitor_Techno-Fundamental_Research_body_aus200.png, Global Equity Monitor: Techno-Fundamental Research & Analysis

Technical: Rallies have been well capped above 4,300 as we had anticipated and the market is in the process of rolling back over in favor of a bearish decline towards 4,165. A break below 4,165 will then accelerate setbacks and expose 4,100 and the 4,000 further down. Ultimately, only back above 4,315 gives reason for pause.

Fundamental:Aussie stocks were propped by the Australian dollar’s rise to a one-week high before the European Central Bank begins long term refinancing operations today. Meanwhile, Australia’s largest surfwear maker Billabong today ended talk of A$841.8 million takeover offer.
