Investors are now focused on the Jackson Hole symposium that begins Thursday, with a speech from Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell on Friday likely to provide more clues about the pace of future rate hikes, and whether the central bank can achieve a “soft landing” for the economy.


Technical Outlook

Technically, the index with its recent rise is trying to compensate for part of what it incurred from previous losses. Att the same time it is trying to discharge some of its clear oversold by the relative strength indicators. This is in light of the stability of its trading below the level of 33,240, and under the control of the bearish trend in the medium term along a slope line. You can see this in the attached chart for a period of time (daily). In front of these negative pressures, we find it moving above its simple moving average for the previous 50 days, which gives it some positive momentum.

Therefore, our expectations suggest a return to the index’s decline during its upcoming trading, especially throughout its stability below the resistance level 33,240, to target the support level 32,272.65.
