  • 96.01

Support levels:

  • 95.00
  • 94.10

NASDAQ DAILY CHART

Initial NASDAQ (US Tech) price action has expectedly dropped on the back of higher US Treasury yields which tend to have a negative relationship with tech stocks. This is due to growth stock future earnings valuations being hampered by rising yields.

EUR/USD DAILY CHART

Please add a description for the image.

EUR/USD is now testing the 1.1400 psychological level as well as the falling wedge formation. The pattern is not invalidated just yet and could unfold once markets digest the release.
