Market Daily Outlook – US stocks, New Highs

US stocks have verified the V formation and performed even better than expected. August was the best month over 30 years as SP500 is gaining over 7% and NAS100 rising 9%. Worth mentioning that US30 will have major changes today as Salesforce, Amgen, and Honeywell will replace Exxon Mobil, Pfizer, and Raytheon Technologies, as well as a 4-for-1 Apple stock split, will take place. Consequently, Apple will have a smaller weight on US30. 

Indeed EU indices are lagging behind US equities. DAX30 is near all-time highs however FR40 and UK100 remain very weak. Earlier today,  French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian blamed the UK for delaying the post-Brexit talks. Italy’s GDP fell by 12.8% in YOY. Similar weak numbers have been announced by Cyprus, Belgium, Iceland, and Slovenia.  

Reviewing the technicals, SP500 tries to validate the 3500 level and remains overbought excessively. NAS100 has the same behavior and is moving above 12000 level. The index is testing the upper side of the rising channel. GER30 still remains bullish though has less bullishness. As long as 5 and 20 EMA hold the buyers have the control.
