Market Analysis: Nike Stock Price Fall by 4%. What Does This Mean?

FXOpen

Yesterday, NKE's share price closed above USD 113, but trading today could open below USD 109 per Nike share.

The reason is in the weak report released by the company. Analysts note a drop in demand for products, which may mean a "wake-up call" for consumption in the US economy, squeezed by tight monetary policy.

According to finance professor Jeremy Siegel, "it's hard to see a lot of upside catalysts for the market in the second half of this year." The AI-driven rally is no guarantee that the US economy, which is made up of more than just tech companies, will not slip into recession.

The NKE stock chart shows that the price today will fluctuate around the lower border of the rising channel (shown in blue), which is valid in 2023. However, after a series of bounces seen in June, the bears may push through this support line to dominate the down channel (shown in red).
