Nasdaq shows relative strength

BY Janne Muta

|June 21, 2023

Nasdaq has been a strong performer lately and continues to show relative strength as indices retrace after a strong performance over the last weeks. Equity markets have been trading lower since Friday with DJ pulling back 1.48% from the highs while Nasdaq has declined 1.4%. This softness in the markets has been attributed to a lack of significant data releases or headline news.

However, the tech-heavy Nasdaq index is trending higher as companies like NVIDIA, Meta, Intel and Netflix are catching investors' attention. In this report, we’ll cover INTC, META and NFLX. Interest rates saw a small decrease yesterday, with 10-year Treasury yields falling 3.725 before recovering slightly.

Cable rallied to 1.2802, as the UK CPI came in slightly higher than expected. Market participants have been bidding the market higher ahead of the Bank of England's monetary policy meeting tomorrow. The pound has strengthened as wages have increased the economy has continued to expand.

May inflation data showed the CPI at 8.7% (prior 8.7%) and Core CPI at 7.1% (prior 6.8%). While April's headline inflation rate was the lowest in over a year, it still remains well above the Bank of England's target of 2%. Consequently, investors are speculating that the UK policy interest rate could peak at 5.75% by early next year.
