Nasdaq 100 Price Forecast: Fundamental Elements Remain Upbeat
Sep 13, 2020 (MENAFN via COMTEX) —
(MENAFN – DailyFX) NASDAQ 100 FUNDAMENTAL OUTLOOK:
Recent selloff may prove to be another ‘healthy correction’ in the mid-term bull run A calm bond market and falling volatility (VIX) suggests lack of systemic risks US presidential election, US-China spat, and rising US Dollar are among the key risks Nasdaq 100 Index Outlook:
US stock markets entered a technical correction in early September, as investors were increasingly wary about the tech-driven rally. The Nasdaq 100 index was among the worst-performing US indices this month, falling over 9% from its all-time high. The S & P 500 and Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 6% and 5% respectively during the same period. Information technology was the worst-performing sector this month, dragged by mega companies such as Tesla, Apple, and Alphabet.
Despite the ongoing spat between US and China over technology companies and intellectual property, tensions are unlikely to escalate into a major market event before the US Presidential election in November. A calm bond market, a falling volatility (VIX), and a non-event gold market suggest a lack of evidence for systemic risk, at least for now.
