Crude oil inventories increased by 1 million barrels yesterday. The market is expecting a drawdown of 5.2 million barrels. EIA report is due today.

German economy beats the GDP growth expectations. DAX 30 rallies and boosts the European market.

S&P500 -0.33%
At the moment the index is down 0.33% and is trading at 3,865.16. Market has been correcting for two consecutive days due to the uncertainty generated by the fundamentals. Yesterday, Fed Chairman Jerome Powell began his testimony in preparation for today’s presentation to the US Congress. He concluded yesterday that the inflation target is still a long way off. He also stressed that the Fed is continuing its bond-buying strategy to keep fixed income yields positive.

NASDAQ 100 -0.33%
Of Wall Street indexes, Nasdaq 100 has suffered the hardest hit by the correction. Investors have their sights set on a post-pandemic market, so portfolio allocation has begun to change. During the pandemic, technology stocks performed very well. As a result, traders have started to sell technology stocks. Investors are evaluating industrial, financial, airline, and retail stocks. On the other hand, the correlation between Tesla and Bitcoin is approaching 1, so Bitcoin’s market movements directly affect the company’s performance. Yesterday, with Bitcoin correction, Tesla shares fell 12%. 
Support 1: 12,979.70
Support 2: 13,018.41
Support 3: 13,077.33

CRUDE OIL -0.23%
Crude oil is currently down 0.23% as a result of the increase in crude oil inventories in the USA. The commodity is currently trading at USD$61.47 per barrel. According to the API report, inventories increased by 1 million barrels. The market was expecting a drawdown of 5.2 million barrels. Today, we will have the inventories report from the EIA.

DAX 30 +0.68%
European market opens positive and seeks to recover part of yesterday’s correction. DAX 30 is currently up 0.68% and is trading at 13,920. Investors in Europe are attentive to Jerome Powell’s testimony in front of the US Congress. It is worth remembering that the FED is trying to maintain an inflation target of 2%, but its main target is to seek economic growth. Powell’s thesis is that economic recovery depends on vaccines. When asked yesterday about the USD$1.9T stimulus package, he mentioned that this is not the Fed’s job.

The rebound in the price of the DAX 30 is due to Germany’s GDP result, which rose 0.3% in 4Q 2020. The market estimated a growth rate of 0.1%. German economy outperformed the expectations.
