US equity indices surge after CPI data supports lower rates

US stock futures have ripped higher, with S&P 500, Nasdaq and Dow Jones recovering from the recent sell-off. With interest rate expectations and a rebound in bank stocks supporting the rally, financials, industrials and technology led gains, driving major stock indices higher.

After the collapse of SVB (Silicon Valley Bank), US authorities assured clients that deposits would be guaranteed. As the injection of liquidity into financial markets filtered through, the probability of a 50-basis point rate hike at next week’s FOMC subsided.

Although the Federal Reserve has remained committed to taming inflation, the release of US CPI data provided an additional catalyst for price action.

With both Core inflation and the annual inflation rate in-line with estimates, the repricing of rate expectations (participants now favoring a 25-basis point rate hike) has boosted demand for risk assets.

S&P 500 Price Action

At the time of writing, S&P 500 futures are trading close to 2% higher on the day. As First Republic Bank leads gains with a 49% rise, the index is testing the 200-day MA (moving average), providing resistance around 3,950.

With the 4,000 psychological level up ahead, support has formed around 3,925. While financials continue to drive prices higher, bulls will need to clear 4,000 to recover from last week’s losses.

However, if bullish momentum fades, a move back to 12,000 would be necessary to fuel bearish momentum.

Dow Jones (DJI) Price Action

After bouncing off the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement of the 2022 move (31,766), Dow Jones futures continued higher before running into another barrier of resistance at 32,400. With the Salesforce Inc currently leading gains, a move higher could see the next big level of resistance forming at 33,000.
