S&P 500 Reverses After NFP Data Fails to See the Index Break Above 1900

Following a fairly neutral Non-Farm Payrolls report, Michael Hewson takes a look at the sharp pull back in US stocks, as well as the potential gains for the euro on a lack of ECB action.

  • S&P 500 failed to break above 1900 and so reversed to test support levels around 1840
  • We have seen a reversal in EUR/USD as Draghi refrained from taking any drastic action to combat deflation fears
  • Chinese stimulus and potentially good data is seeing a head and shoulders pattern which may target a 200 point gain in AUD/USD
