Tech Stocks Continue Upward Momentum Ahead of Tesla, Netflix Earnings

The Nasdaq index continued its latest surge higher, buoyed by largely positive earnings from the major US banks. Banks apart from Goldman Sachs and Citi beat EPS estimates as interest rates continue higher in the US. Big banks typically see an increase in net interest income during rate hiking cycles but when rates become too restrictive, customers become more likely to default on their loans.

The recent progress in core inflation has also played a part in the bullish run, adding more fuel to the fire. Signs of disinflation have accumulated in the US, which adds less pressure on the Fed to hike aggressively.

Nasdaq Approaching a Test of the All-Time High

The weekly Nasdaq chart shows the bullish run touching the upper side of the ascending channel which has contained price action since the start of the major move higher towards the end of last year. There is a fair distance from current levels to a retest if the all-time high but at the current rate, the upside level of 16,767 could be in sight very soon.

The daily chart helps to assess the sheer momentum behind the bullish move, characterised by a distinct lack of counter-trend pullbacks. More recently, prices consolidated 15,260 before the current advance took hold. Passing through 15,710 with ease, the index now has the all-time high back within touching distance – if positive earnings reports can provide the catalyst.
