US opening: indices rebound thanks to a weak dollar

  • Wall Street indices slightly reduce yesterday’s opening losses
  • The dollar loses ground, erasing the previous day’s gains
  • Bond yields rise

The last day of this week is marked by a slight recovery after the good results of the PMI index yesterday. Following the publication of the macroeconomic report, we observed a return of capital to safe haven assets such as the dollar, and declines in stock indices and cryptocurrencies. Even the better quarterly data released by Nvidia after Wednesday’s session did not improve sentiment.

However, today, despite changing expectations for early interest rate cuts, we are once again seeing gains in stock indexes. The US500 index is up 0.40% at the time of publication, returning above 5300 points, and the US100 index is up 0.50% around 18770 points. The recovery is supported by the weakening dollar, which is the weakest currency in the G10 today. The dollar index is down 0.25%, erasing all yesterday’s gains after the good results of the US PMI index.

In the case of US500 contracts, the recovery is slightly lower than that of the dollar. The US500 is up 0.40%, returning above 5300 points. Nevertheless, the most important resistance level for the bulls remains around 5350.
