Sep 02, 2022

 

US Markets Round-Up

This week, the Russell 3000 index, an important benchmark of the US stock market across market capitalizations, started on a negative note and continued its weak momentum. The index made a low of 2258.583 during the week and settled at 2294.628 with a week-to-date (WTD) loss of ~2.50 percent on September 01, 2022. Other major indices such as S&P 500 and NASDAQ Composite witnessed negative movement for the week. On September 01, 2022, the S&P 500 index settled at 3966.850 with a WTD loss of ~2.23 percent, while the NASDAQ Composite Index settled at 11785.126 with a WTD loss of ~2.937 percent.

The indices showed a negative move despite a decrease in the US Unemployment Insurance Weekly Claims numbers which decreased to 232,000 from 237,000 (revised level) in the prior week.

Having understood the US market performance over the week, taking cues from major global news, and based on technical analysis of the Russell 3000 index for the upcoming week, now let’s have a look at the one NYSE listed stock to pick from the technical standpoint. Noted below recommendation is based on the entry price, target prices, and stop-loss for TDCX Inc. (NYSE: TDCX) for the next 2-4 weeks duration: 

TDCX Inc.


TDCX Inc. (NYSE: TDCX) is a Singapore-based company that provides digital customer experience solutions like omnichannel CX solutions; sales and digital marketing services; and content monitoring and moderation services. Noted below are the key price indicators for the stock:

Price Action Analysis (on the Daily Chart) 

TDCX prices broke a long downward sloping trendline by an upside and are sustaining above the breakout level, indicating the possibility of upside momentum hereon. The recent upside movement in the stock is backed by increasing volumes as well, further supporting a positive bias. Now the next major resistance level for the stock appears at USD 11.00, and prices may test this level in the short-term (2-4 weeks). A further movement above USD 11.00 may extend buying in the stock.

Technical Indicators Analysis (On the Daily Chart)

On the daily chart, the leading indicator RSI (14-period) is moving in a positive zone and showing a reading of 61.51. The volumes seem supportive for the next upside movement. The prices are trading above the trend-following indicator 21-period and 50-period SMA, which may support the prices.

General Recommendation

As per the above-mentioned price action and technical indicators analysis, TDCX Inc. is looking technically well-placed on the chart, and a ‘Speculative Buy’ recommendation has been given on the stock. Investment decision should be made depending on an individual’s appetite for upside potential, risks, and any previous holdings. This recommendation is purely based on technical analysis, and fundamental analysis has not been considered in this report. The summary of recommendation is as follows:


Markets are trading in a highly volatile zone currently due to certain macro-economic and prevailing geopolitical tensions. Therefore, it is prudent to follow a cautious approach while investing. 

Upcoming Major Global Economic Events

Related Risks: This report may be looked at from high-risk perspective and recommendations are provided are for a short duration. Recommendations provided in this report are solely based on technical parameters, and the fundamental performance of the stocks has not been considered in the decision-making process. Other factors which could impact the stock prices include market risks, regulatory risks, interest rates risks, currency risks, social and political instability risks etc.

Note 1: Individuals can consider exiting from the stock if the Target Price or Stop loss mentioned as per the technical analysis has been achieved and subject to the factors discussed above. 

Note 2: How to Read the Charts?

The Green colour line reflects the 21-period moving average while the red line indicates the 50- period moving average. SMA helps to identify existing price trend. If the prices are trading above the 21-period and 50-period moving average, then it shows prices are currently trading in a bullish trend.

The Black colour line in the chart’s lower segment reflects the Relative Strength Index (14-Period) which indicates price momentum and signals momentum in trend. A reading of 70 or above suggests overbought status while a reading of 30 or below suggests an oversold status.

The Blue colour bars in the chart’s lower segment show the volume of the stock. The volume is the number of shares that changed hands during a given day. Stocks with high volumes are more liquid than stocks with lesser volume as liquidity in stocks helps in easier and faster execution of the order.

The Orange colour lines are the trend lines drawn by connecting two or more price points and used for trend identification purposes. The trend line also acts as a line of support and resistance.

Technical Indicators Defined: -

Support: A level at which the stock prices tend to find support if they are falling, and a downtrend may take a pause backed by demand or buying interest. Support 1 refers to the nearby support level for the stock and if the price breaches the level, then Support 2 may act as the crucial support level for the stock. 

Resistance: A level at which the stock prices tend to find resistance when they are rising, and an uptrend may take a pause due to profit booking or selling interest. Resistance 1 refers to the nearby resistance level for the stock and if the price surpasses the level, then Resistance 2 may act as the crucial resistance level for the stock. 

Stop-loss: It is a level to protect further losses in case of unfavourable movement in the stock prices. 

Risk Reward Ratio: Risk reward ratio is the difference between an entry point to a stop loss and profit level. This report is based on ~60% Stop Loss of the Target 1 from the entry point. 

A trailing stop-loss is a modification of stop-loss in case of favourable movement in the price to protect the gains. Individuals can Trail the Stop-Loss as per the aforementioned levels if the stock price achieves more than 50% of the Target 1. Individuals should consider exiting from the position as per the Trailing Stop-Loss level if the price starts moving downwards after achieving more than 50% of the Target 1. 

The reference date for all price data, currency, technical indicators, support, and resistance levels is September 01, 2022. The reference data in this report has been partly sourced from REFINITIV.
