US Stock Market Technical Analysis | August 05, 2022

Stock futures under bearish pressure after strong job data

The stock market reacted bearishly toward the strong job data release today. Non-farm Employment shows a massive increase of 528k jobs compared to 250k expectations. Meanwhile, the unemployment rate trending down to 3.5% compared to the 3.6% expectation. Strong job data means the Fed will keep track on the path of more rate hikes or translate into more rate-hike.

DJIA futures currently lower 137 points and might add more loss. Next week, traders will observe inflation data. Another increase in inflation numbers will dampen bullish sentiment.
