Nasdaq 100 Forecast: Netflix Earnings Loom as Tech Sentiment Teeters

Nasdaq 100 Forecast: Netflix Earnings Loom as Tech Sentiment Teeters

Nasdaq 100 Price Outlook:

Nasdaq 100 Forecast: Netflix Earnings Loom as Tech Sentiment Teeters

The trading week began with a volatile session for the Nasdaq 100 which sent the tech-heavy index spiraling lower ahead of earnings from some of the country’s largest financial institutions. In the days that followed, the Nasdaq recovered admirably but the sudden surge in risk aversion is a worrisome sign ahead of earnings from some of the most popular Nasdaq components. First up to bat is streaming provider and content producer Netflix.

Often included in acronyms that bundle high-flying technology stocks, Netflix has long been afforded a high degree of influence in the technology sector. Further still, the streaming service was identified as a possible outperformer back in April, as many analysts correctly predicted an uptick in subscribers amid government mandated stay-at-home orders.

Unsurprisingly, the company went on to enjoy a boost in users and hours of content streamed. Now, market participants will look for further follow-through from Netflix in an attempt to justify months of gains the stock has enjoyed.

Crude Oil Price Trapped at Resistance as Other Risk Assets Climb

While the quarterly results may have a large impact on shares of Netflix specifically, takeaways from the report could spillover into other leading stocks and the entire Nasdaq. To be sure, the sensitive state of risk appetite may only exacerbate the impact of the coming reports. With that in mind, an acceptable result from the FANGMAN group may be pivotal for other growth-linked markets like crude oil, copper and the Australian Dollar as they approach resistance.

With the Nasdaq at the cutting edge of speculative risk appetite, it is rather unsurprising the index has climbed to a technical barrier of its own. After a brief trip above, the Nasdaq has returned to the confines of an ascending channel that has kept the index contained since April.

With resistance overhead and a lot of open air beneath, technical traders may look to capitalize on the seemingly skewed risk-reward layout of the tech-heavy index. In the meantime, follow @PeterHanksFX on Twitter for updates as the season progresses and investors patiently await the coming reports.
