Risk Assets Ahead of Rally: What to Buy?

Risk Assets Ahead of Rally: What to Buy?

2022-08-12 • Updated

US100 broke through the strong resistance trendline, following July's inflation numbers on Wednesday, which were less than analysts expected. The expectations of an upcoming inflation decrease and the fact that, despite the Federal Reserve's aggressive interest rate increases, companies remain profitable, and the jobs market is still in good shape helped to improve investors' sentiment.

Moreover, on Thursday, the Producer Price Index (PPI) also confirmed possible cooling of inflation, as numbers underperformed the forecasts.

The NASDAQ 100 (US100) is a capitalization-weighted index, which includes companies from major industry groups, such as computer hardware/software, retail/wholesale trade, biotechnology, and telecommunications.

Usually, investors treat these companies as risky investments as many have low revenue relative to debt. Therefore, this index is the main indicator of the traders' and investors' risk sentiment.

US100 breakout on the D1 timeframe

What to trade?


If US100 doesn’t return under the trendline by the end of the week, traders might consider buy trades with the target at 14 000.

CCL, Daily chart


Although the stock of Carnival Corporation isn't included in US100, the overall stock market growth might boost CCL. The price has formed a triple bottom pattern with the resistance at $11.10. Traders should consider buying the stock after the breakout of this level, with the target at $13.35 (21% potential profit).

AMD, weekly chart


The price has formed a double bottom inside of the bullish wedge. The wedge breakout has already happened, highlighting the possibility of an upcoming pump. Traders should consider buying AMD stock after the price breaks above $110.00, with the target at $135.00.

Coinbase, daily


COIN broke out of the horizontal consolidation, and currently, the price is retesting the breakout from above. If buyers hold the $80.00 support, they will have all chances to push the stock to $155.00.

Nvidia, daily


Nvidia is consolidating between 163.00 and 193.00. Currently, the price is forming an inverted head-and-shoulders pattern. The breakout of 193.00 resistance will confirm the pattern and set the target at 230.00.

If the price goes below 163.00, it will go towards 145.00.

Tesla, daily chart


Tesla stock is trading inside the inverted falling wedge, which usually works as a bullish pattern. If the price breaks above 935.00, traders should consider following the trend with the target at 1040.00. Trade declines if the price falls below 825.00.

Apple, weekly chart


Apple stock also moves inside an inverted falling wedge. The rally will start after the breakout of the wedge’s upper border. In this case, the first targets will be 182.00 and 212.00.

If the price doesn’t break the resistance, it will decline to 155.00.
