Stock indexes remained mostly unchanged this week as Q1 earnings showed mixed results. However, bears believe that there are still numerous obstacles ahead for stock prices, including inflation, tighter credit conditions, high borrowing costs, and over-stretched consumer budgets. These concerns are coupled with fears of a US recession in the second half of the year. Our robots have also noted a significant level without significant changes. In case of a decline, we will open short positions and make profits from them.
Forward guidance issued by companies during their Q1 reports will likely have a big impact on investor sentiment and could lead to a revision of earnings forecasts. Bulls argue that many of the ongoing concerns have already been priced in, but the S&P 500 is still down more than -13% from its most recent record high.
The Fed's Beige Book yesterday revealed slower growth in several districts and declining bank lending volumes across consumer and business loans, as well as tightened lending standards. Many economists and Fed officials believe that tightening credit conditions could better slow the economy and bring inflation back to the Fed's target rate.
Data to watch includes Existing Home Sales and the Philadelphia Fed Manufacturing Index. Earnings highlights include American Express, AT&T, Blackstone, CSX, D.R. Horton, Nokia, Nucor, PPG Industries, SnapOn, Taiwan Semiconductor, and Union Pacific. The overall tech sector will likely be supported if Taiwan Semiconductor reports good earnings.
The big tech sector's performance has a significant impact on the overall market. Therefore, it's tough to predict a market crash without seeing Apple, Microsoft, Nvidia, Alphabet, Tesla, etc. rolling over and getting hit hard.
