With the BoJ's decision, the cycle of publishing monetary decisions of major central banks this week comes to an end. The markets reacted volatile to them, but overall the indices recorded losses on a weekly basis. The relatively hawkish Fed and its published new dot-plot indicated the possibility of one more hike this year and the postponement of the first rate cuts. The overtones of this conference broadly affected sentiment around the US100 index and TNOTE.
The US100 index has been recording declines, which have reached, from the perspective of technical analysis, important support zones set by the 100-day exponential moving average (purple curve), which, it is worth mentioning, have not been tested for nearly 6 months. Moreover, the declines themselves are directly driven by the sell-offs observed in the debt market, which has historically shown a correlation with the listings of technology companies.
