US Equity Analysis and News

  • DJIA Eyes topside target
  • Nasdaq 100 dip buying possible

S&P 500

Despite the Trump administrations announcement of $200bln worth of tariffs on China, risk assets are unfazed with S&P 500 futures pointing to higher open at 0.2%. Alongside this, the tariff rate is to be set at 10%, as opposed to 25%, consequently taking the sting out of the latest round of tariffs. The S&P 500 continues to hover around the bullish 2889-2899 value, suggesting that there is scope for further upside. Consequently, the outlook remains modestly bullish.
