After yesterday’s negative session, whatever hope U.S. stock markets had of recovery, has been dashed by a weaker employment report.
A lower than expected jobs growth had causes U.S. stock futures to tumble deep in red, indicating a big gap down opening for markets today.
Going by the candlestick charts, U.S. markets had indicated yesterday that markets are in for a few more negative sessions. Especially Dow Jones, which made a long, negative candlestick signaling continuation of negative trading in further sessions.
Nasdaq and S&P 500 indexes also made similar negative candlesticks indicating more negative session ahead.
Dow Jones has next support at 13,100 mark and then at 13,000 level. The only matter of interest in markets today will be to see at what levels U.S. markets close on the last trading day of this week. That will indicate what to expect next week from markets.
