Score 7.8 (out of 10): NASDAQ 100 E-MINI poised to rally +7.3% rally in 3 months


What’s Going On Here?

Earlier this week, Federal Reserve Chairman, Jay Powell, has indicated a faster ‘taper’ of the Fed’s stimulus program which might imply higher cost of borrowing rates as the Fed’s bond buying program has kept interest rates low. Longer duration assets, such as technology companies, tend to perform best when interest rates are low or declining. In addition, the new omicron virus has hurt risk sentiment, causing a correction in risk assets.
