Ford backs down as traders worry over lowered guidance

As investors dumped equities ahead of tomorrow's publication of the Fed Interest Rate Decision, the S&P 500 fell approaching the 3850 mark.

Following the company's admission that it was experiencing a components shortage, Ford's stock fell by more than 10% during today's trading session. Ford said that it "expects to have around 40,000 to 45,000 cars in inventory at the conclusion of the third quarter missing specific items currently in limited supply." Ford reiterated its $11.5 billion to $12.5 billion adjusted EBIT target for the whole year. The market, however, is concerned that the business may soon have to reduce its outlook.

The material pressure on gold stocks has increased as gold markets have been approaching annual lows. Newmont Corporation, one of the top gold stocks, fell by more than 4% during today's trade.

Considering that WTI oil managed to go below the $84 mark, energy equities are also declining.

Chevron, Schlumberger, and Exxon Mobil are all down more than 1%.

The majority of the top tech stocks are declining. Apple and Tesla, however, are up by more than 1%.

From a broad perspective, the current downturn is significant, and pressure is seen across all market categories. Prior to the Fed Interest Rate Decision, traders minimize their risks because they are concerned that a rate increase of 75 basis points may be accompanied by hawkish remarks from Fed Chair Jerome Powell. Treasury rates reach fresh highs as bond traders worry Powell will be aggressive.

Another Examination Of The Critical Support At 3850

The S&P 500 is trying to close below the crucial support level at 3850. The S&P 500 will move in the direction of the next support at 3825 if it drops below this level. The S&P 500 will be pushed toward the support at 3800 if a move is made below the support at 3825. The next support level, which is at 3780, will be reached if the S&P 500 drops below 3800.

To the upside, the S&P 500 must hold above the 3885 resistance level in order to have a chance of gaining upward momentum soon. 3900 is where the next resistance level is situated. If this level is successfully tested, the following resistance level at 3920 may then be tested.
