According to them:
→ the price of the S&P 500 index will reach 4,500 at the end of the year (previous forecast = 4,200);
→ the dollar will continue to remain strong.
According to Goldman Sachs analysts, published yesterday, the price of the S&P 500 index will fluctuate around current levels, forming a consolidation zone.
That is, a decline in the S&P 500 is not a priority scenario. An important test that will provide more important information about current market sentiment will occur today: US inflation data will be published at 16:30 GMT+3. According to forecasts, it will slow down from 3.7% to 3.3%.
In anticipation of news, E-mini S&P 500 index futures are showing reduced volatility. If inflation data gives rise to bullish momentum, it is possible that the price of the S&P 500 will move up, pushing off from the median line of the ascending channel (shown in blue). Then, justifying the forecasts of MS analysts, the price may reach the upper limit of the channel this month.
Also worth paying attention to:
→ increasing local minima A, B, C show signs of demand strength;
→ RSI indicates non-divergence, increasing the likelihood of a movement to the lower border of the channel.
