U.S. Stock Market
U.S. stocks closed lower on Friday, as if traders were exhausted by all the drama the week threw at them, although the S&P 500 hit a new intraday high for the second day in a row. The Dow Jones fell 0.13%, the S&P 500 dropped 0.13%, and the NASDAQ lost 24%. Technically, according to the 1-hour chart, the S&P is holding above a bullish trend line, which may drive the price towards 2,990. However, breaking below the line could cause it to fall to around 2,900.
Walt Disney (DIS)
Walt Disney stock fell, closing at $140.26. On the 1-hour chart, the share is trading above a bullish trend line. Under these conditions, the price could go up to around $143.00. Dropping below the line, however, could send it tumbling towards $137.50.
U.S. Dollar (USD)
The U.S. dollar remained near three-month lows on Friday as rising tensions between Iran and the U.S. and weaker-than-expected PMI data kept the greenback down.
Gold rose on Friday in a continuation of the Federal Reserve-driven rally that has lifted prices by 4% this week. According to the 1-hour chart, the yellow metal is trading above the 20-day Moving Average, supported by a positive momentum indicator. This should push the price up to around $1,408 but breaking below the SMA could start a negative trend towards $1,300.
Crude Oil rose, closing at $57.63. On the 4-hour chart, the commodity is trading below the bearish trend line, which may cause a decline to around $56.00. Breaching above the line, on the other hand, could take the price up towards $59.00.
The euro traded higher versus the dollar, closing at 1.1369. On the 8-hour chart, the EUR/USD is trading below the resistance of 1.1400 and is now widely expected to drop back to around 1.1200. However, breaching above the line could take the pair up towards 1.1500.
British Pound (GBP)
The pound traded higher versus the dollar, closing at 1.2744. On the 1-hour chart, the GBP/USD is holding below the resistance of 1.2770. A drop back to lower areas around 1.2600 could be on the cards, although crossing above the line may lift the pair towards 1.2900.
