Chicago, IL, Aug 31, 2022 (News Direct via Comtex) -- --News Direct--

After four weeks of bullish action, it appears the market may be reaching the height of its rally.

Experts from BlackRock Inc. /zigman2/quotes/207946232/composite BLK -1.09% and JPMorgan Chase & Co. /zigman2/quotes/205971034/composite JPM +1.56% have been warning the public that the rally experienced in the last month is bound to be met with resistance soon, a premonition they attributed to worsening global economic conditions.

SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (nysearca:SPY) has, perhaps, begun validating these beliefs, declining 1.16% last week and starting off Monday by gapping down more than 1%. Cboe Global Markets Inc. (bats:CBOE) reports that European exchange-traded funds (ETFs) like the iShares Core MSCI Europe ETF (nysearca:IEUR), iShares Core DAX UCITS ETF (bit:EXS1) and Lyxor CAC 40 ETF (epa:CAC) have all experienced price drops last week, too.

Cryptocurrency leaders Bitcoin (crypto:BTC) and Ethereum (crypto:ETH) have mirrored the equities market, each declining more than 10% last week. Exemplifying the market’s downturn is Zoom Video Communications Inc. /zigman2/quotes/211319643/composite ZM -1.34% , this week’s chart of the week following a disappointing earnings report.

Finally, Cboe notes upcoming earnings that may lift investors’ eyebrows in the week to follow.

  • The SPDR S&P 500 ETF decreased by 1.16% last week, hinting at a potential top following a strong rally throughout June, July and the first half of August.

  • The Invesco QQQ Trust Series 1 /zigman2/quotes/208575548/composite QQQ -0.82% increased by 2.28% last week, following suit with the SPY’s overall movements.

  • The iShares Russell 2000 ETF /zigman2/quotes/209961116/composite IWM +0.38% rose by 2.85% last week, the highest increase among the three exchange-traded funds recorded in this series.

  • The Cboe Volatility Index™ (indexcboe:VIX) decreased by 0.15% last week.

  • The iShares Core MSCI Europe ETF (nysearca:IEUR) decreased by 3.69% week-on-week.

  • The iShares FTSE 100 UCITS ETF /zigman2/quotes/203510042/delayed UK:ISF +0.50% increased by 0.81% week-on-week, showing unusual strength.

  • The iShares Core DAX UCITS ETF (bit:EXS1) decreased by 1.86% week-on-week.

  • The Lyxor CAC 40 ETF (epa:CAC) decreased by 0.98 % week-on-week.

Shares of telecommunications company Zoom Video Communications tumbled following an earnings report that surprised Wall Street analysts.

On Aug. 22, the company reported an earnings per share (EPS) profit of $1.05, a figure 10% greater than consensus estimates. The positive EPS figure, however, was eclipsed by the company’s revenue miss, which saw it record $1.099 billion instead of the $1.116 billion estimate.

The small deviation — amounting to 1.45% — was enough to drive the company’s stock from $97.44 a share to $84.56 on the next day’s open, a 13% decline overnight.

Since its height in October 2020, the company’s stock has fallen a whopping 86%.

  • Bitcoin decreased by 11.48% last week following weeks of upward momentum. The cryptocurrency remains in a downtrend on the weekly and daily charts.
