NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA) missed expectations

Over the last week, we’ve seen surveys indicating investors turning more cautious, Wall Street have a falling out with its favorite stock (), and data showing just how harshly investors judged poor earnings over the last quarter.

The more than 18% drop in shares of Nvidia (NVDA) on Friday — which followed the company’s earnings report on Thursday that missed expectations — was but the latest evidence of a market ready to hammer yesterday’s winners for not living up to the hype. Through Friday’s close, Nvidia shares are down 38% from their all-time high.

If 2018 was a year where investors tried to sort out how much tax cuts changed the long-run trajectory of the U.S. economy and the health of corporate America, 2019 will be about investors bracing for the start of the next downturn.

The issues at hand for executives are rising interest rates and Trump’s trade war. Neither of which are going away. Several Fed speakers in the last few days of the week made clear that the Fed is not going to be moved off its current course of raising rates in December and then again at least two times in 2019 because of the recent bout of market volatility.

On trade, the headlines from the Trump administration may be contradictory at times but there still exists nothing more than a preliminary outline of what a trade deal with might look like. But it’s clear Trump will continue pressing until a new deal is made.

In its latest corporate Beige Book, an overview of what companies said about the economy on their earnings conference calls, Goldman Sachs’ equity strategy team noted that though executives acknowledged a slowing pace of global growth, they see the market as overstating the potential dangers.

A falling window occurred (where the bottom of the previous shadow is above the top of the current shadow). This usually implies a continuation of a bearish trend. There have been 3 falling windows in the last 50 candles–this makes the current falling window even more bearish.

A spinning top occurred (a spinning top is a candle with a small real body). Spinning tops identify a session in which there is little price action (as defined by the difference between the open and the close).

Momentum Indicators

Commodity Channel Index (CCI)

The CCI shows overbought (above 100) and oversold (below -100) areas. The current value of the CCI is -277.This is an oversold reading. However, a signal isn’t generated until the indicator crosses above -100. The last signal was a buy 3 period(s) ago.
