S&P 500 | Consolidation Above 2900 Points to Further Upside

This saw the S&P 500 hit a fresh record peak at 2958, however, gains had not been sustained with the index dropping back towards support at 2900. The trend continues to point to the upside and as such, eyes will be back on the 2940 level as long as the index continues to hover above 2900. However, a closing break below will raise questions as to whether this would spark a more meaningful reversal.

DAX | Topside Resistance in Focus, Overbought Territory Raises Risk of Exhaustion

Modest gains for DAX this week, which has consolidated above the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement (12291), in turn, this keeps risks tilted to the upside, albeit modestly so, given that prices are now hovering in overbought territory. Topside resistance is situated at 12460, which represents the Sep 21st and 27th peak. A closing break above keeps 12500 in focus. Implied move for the week ahead is 1.3%.

FTSE | Bounce Off Uptrend Low Keeps Upside Momentum Intact

Marginal losses for the FTSE 100 throughout the week, following the pick-up in the Pound midweek. However, the index had managed to curb further losses following a bounce off support from the lower bound of the 2019 uptrend. A weekly close above 7400 would be required in order to maintain the upside momentum, for now the outlook in the short term is neutral. However, a break below the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement could exacerbate a move to the low 7300. Implied move for the week is 1.1%.
