Risk Aversion Returns to Markets as Protests in China Make Headlines

Major stock indices are trading lower after protests in China reduced demand for risk assets. With Dax, FTSE and DJIA facing fundamental and technical headwinds, a surge in volatility could drive price action for the remainder of the week.

As the eight-week Dax 40 rally eases back from the 14500 psychological level, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement of the 2020 – 2021 is holding as support at 14330. While the weekly chart illustrates a slowdown in bullish momentum, the 61.8% retracement of the 2022 move provides additional resistance at 14576.

From a shorter timeframe, the daily chart shows a doji candle forming between 14500 and 14576, highlighting indecision. But, with US liquidity returning to markets, a current 0.78% daily decline has pushed Dax 40 back to prior historical resistance turned support at 14400.

FTSE Technical Analysis

For the FTSE 100, prices have remained in a tight range throughout the day as prices trade between 7486 and 7490. With the rising trendline forming support at 7420, the 7400 and 7346 have provided historical support and resistance and may continue to do so in the short-term.

As recession fears and higher rates threatening growth forecasts, focus has shifted back to the economic calendar. With central banks focused on restoring price stabilities, the Federal Reserve is expected to keep a close eye on this week’s economic releases.

While Dow futures follow Dax in shedding approximately 0.79% for the day, GDP, Core PCE, NFP’s (non-farm payrolls) and developments in China are factors that could threaten the trajectory for equities this week.
