. Fundamental Analysis Report With Charting Trends - 10 March 2023



13 Mar 2023


The announcement of Silicon Valley Banks’ closure on Friday shook the world’s stock markets. When investors fled the market, the Nasdaq took the lead, closing 1.76% lower, followed closely by the S&P and Dow. In the last two trading days, the US banking sector lost more than $100 billion in value, but this morning in Asia, futures markets rose on news that US regulators were taking action to slow the negative effects. The unemployment rate and pay growth data decreased, while the Non-Farm Payroll number came in with a stronger print. When expectations for a Fed rate hike decreased, the currency fell sharply along with US Treasury yields.

World markets appear headed for more turbulence as investors process the effects of SVB’s shutdown over the coming trading hours and days. Stocks in the banking industry have experienced some strong sell-offs due to concerns of sector-wide contagion, and on Friday, safe-haven trading ruled the day. The important non-farm payroll data, which came in at 311k versus the predicted 205K and once again above expectations, was almost an afterthought. On a normal day, this data would have sent the dollar soaring. The dollar suffered against most of the major currencies on the day because of slowing wage growth, a rise in unemployment, and market unrest.

central bank speakers scheduled for today’s trading sessions, but investors will be eagerly watching the news wires for any further developments on the SVB crisis and the US response in general. The market anticipates a decrease from last month’s number for tomorrow’s big data release, which will be the latest inflation (CPI) numbers from the states.

How did the US session go?

US labor market statistics are generally worse than in the past. According to the most recent data, incomes climbed by 0.2% (previously expected 0.3%), 311K jobs were added (previously forecasted 504K), and the unemployment rate jumped to 3.6% (previously forecasted 3.4%).

What does it mean for the Asian Session?

The latest announcement by the US Treasury and Federal Reserve to stem the developing crisis in the banking system has weakened the USD and is likely to see a continuation of the reactive effect in the session.

Technical Outlook


Price has reversed from the overlap support that serves as our intermediate support at 1.184 7, and it may now rise to both our first resistance at 1.2440 and our second resistance at 1.2671.

Our first support level, which overlaps support and aligns up with the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement, is at 1.1630.


With a strong reversal from our first support at 1.04788, the EURUSD is now witnessing bullish divergence from the RSI and lines up with the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement. If the price were to break through, it might move up to our first resistance at 1.1001, or it might move up to our intermediate support at 1.0787.

The first significant support, which is also a strong overlap support, is at 1.0478 in terms of price. Price could decline much more if it breaks through this level, reaching our support at 1.03545.


Price is clinging to our first support level of around 0.6554, which corresponds to the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement. The next significant support level, which is also overlap support, would be at 0.6383 if the price were to depart from this one.

The first resistance level, which is a significant overlap resistance, is at 0.6886, and the second resistance level, which is a pullback resistance level, is at 0.7127.


Price is stuck between the first resistance at 139.45, which lines up with the 50% Fibonacci retracement, and the first support at 130.84, which overlaps support. If the price were to break through, it would move up to the second resistance at 145.16. Our secondary backup is 127.087.

S&P 500

Price is currently attempting our overlap resistance at 3907; if price were to break through, it might advance to our second resistance at 4050.

If the price were to reverse from the first resistance level, our first support would be 3782, and our second support would be 3582, another swing low support.


If the price were to reverse from this level, it might push up to our first resistance at 82.119, which is overlap resistance, and our second barrier is 92.47, which is yet another overlap resistance. Price is respecting our ascending trendline, which coincides with our first support level at 72.72.


From our first support in 1805, the price has neatly reversed. The price is currently testing the 50% Fibonacci retracement at 181, which is our first resistance level. The price might fall to our first support in 1805 if it reversed from this resistance. In 1734, which is overlap support, we have our second support.

1960 is our second resistance, which is a swing-high resistance.


The price is moving towards our first resistance level at 1674; if the price were to turn around from here, it might decline to our first support level at 1357, which overlaps support and lines up the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement. The second support level is 1153.
