NASDAQ Index, SP500, Dow Jones Forecasts – Tech Stocks Retreat As Oracle Drops 14%

SP500 120923 4h Chart

SP500 is losing ground amid a sell-off in tech stocks. Oracle, which is down by 14%, is the biggest loser in the index today. The stock gained strong downside momentum after the release of the disappointing earnings report. Apple, which is down by 2%, is also under pressure today. The stock is moving lower as traders react to the Apple event. Historically, a pullback is a typical reaction to the presentation of new products from Apple, so today’s move is not surprising. Meanwhile, energy stocks are among the biggest gainers in SP500 today. Demand for energy stocks is rising as oil markets test new highs.

The nearest material support level for SP500 is located in the 4430 – 4450 range. If SP500 declines below the 4430 level, it will head towards the next support at 4335 – 4350.
