Market Focus: FTSE 100, DAX 40, and Nasdaq 100 Gain Ground

FTSE 100 DAX 40 Nasdaq 100

FTSE 100, DAX 40, and Nasdaq 100 rebounded in the volatile week, showing resilience amid economic data fluctuations.

In a week marked by volatility and recovery attempts, major stock indices staged a bounce-back, recouping some of the losses witnessed in the previous week’s trading sessions. The FTSE 100, DAX 40, and Nasdaq 100 showed signs of stabilization and resilience, driven by various market dynamics and economic data.

FTSE 100 Attempts Stabilization

The FTSE 100 made strides towards overcoming the 8,000 mark on Thursday, although it fell short, slipping to 7,856 before rallying back above the 7,900 level following a post-Non-Farm Payrolls recovery surge. Despite the fluctuation, the index found support near the two-month uptrend line at 7,871, suggesting a potential stabilizing move to the upside. However, a breach of Friday’s low at 7,856 could reignite concerns, putting previous highs between 7,786 and 7,769 back into focus. Notably, minor resistance looms at the 22 March high at 7,962.

DAX 40 Seeks Recovery

After rebounding from Friday’s low of 18,086, the DAX 40 showed resilience in response to considerably stronger-than-anticipated US employment data, ascending to Tuesday’s low of 18,258. However, further upward momentum might face hindrance near Thursday’s high at 18,429 and the breached February-to-April uptrend line, now serving as a resistance line at 18,442.

Nasdaq 100 Shows Signs of Rebound

Amidst a corrective move lower, the Nasdaq 100 descended to Friday’s trough at 17,866 before rebounding significantly, spurred by robust US employment data, reaching Friday’s high of 18,211. This level is an immediate upside target, with support resting around Tuesday’s low at 17,997. Moreover, more significant support is evident between the 55-day simple moving average (SMA) at 17,894 and last week’s low at 17,866.

While market volatility persists, these indices have showcased resilience and attempted recoveries amid shifting economic landscapes and investor sentiment. As uncertainties continue to linger, market participants remain vigilant, closely monitoring key support and resistance levels for further insights into market direction.
