    TSLA Share Price Up About 13% Despite Disappointing Report
    [​IMG]

    Yesterday, TSLA trading closed at USD 144.68 per share, after which Tesla reported its results for the 1st quarter:

    → earnings per share: actual = USD 0.45, forecast = USD 0.49;
    → gross income: actual = USD 21.45 billion, forecast = USD 22.2 billion.

    However, in the post-market, TSLA's share price rose approximately 13% thanks to Elon Musk's plans and statements:

    → We faced numerous challenges in Q1, including the conflict in the Red Sea and the arson attack at the Gigafactory in Berlin. We think the second quarter will be much better.

    → EV adoption rates around the world are under pressure, but electric vehicles will dominate the auto industry in the long term. We continue to invest in AI infrastructure, manufacturing facilities, Supercharger networks, and new products.

    → Production of new models will start at the end of 2024 — beginning of 2025 on existing production lines.

    The stock's rise after the report shows that optimism about the start of production of a new model that could be the most affordable in Tesla's lineup outweighed concerns about the poor report and increased competition.

    On April 5, we wrote that the price of TSLA could reach the psychological level of USD 150 per share.

    AUD/USD Rises Sharply on Inflation News
    [​IMG]

    The Consumer Price Index for Australia was released this morning. According to ForexFactory:

    → CPI in quarterly terms: actual = 1.0%, expected = 0.8%, previous value = 0.6%;
    → CPI in annual terms: actual = 3.5%, expected = 3.4%, previous value = 3.4%.

    Rising inflation figures suggest that the Reserve Bank of Australia's tight monetary policy may continue beyond expectations - which is why the Australian dollar has jumped higher relative to other currencies.

    Thus, from the minimum of the year against the US dollar, recorded on April 19, the Ausssie rose in price by more than 2%.

    Yen in Search of New Lows, Commodity Currencies at a low Start
    [​IMG]

    In recent trading sessions, the dollar has been trading quite differently to leading currencies. Thus, the yen is reaching historical lows, European currencies have managed to correct, and the Australian and Canadian dollars are testing strategic supports.

    USD/JPY
    [​IMG]
    The absence of currency interventions from the Bank of Japan and strong macroeconomic data from the United States are pushing the USD/JPY pair to new levels, above which the price has not risen since 1990. However, in the coming trading sessions the situation may change dramatically:

    • Today at 15.30 (GMT +3:00) US GDP data for the first quarter will be published
    • Tomorrow at 5.30 (GMT +3:00) a meeting of the Bank of Japan will take place, at which a decision on the base interest rate will be announced.

    This week, Japanese Finance Minister Shunichi Suzuki issued what is now the strongest possible warning about the possibility of intervention. "I will not deny that these events have laid the groundwork for Japan to take appropriate action (in the foreign exchange market), although I will not say what those actions might be," the official said.

    According to technical analysis of USD/JPY, the pair is in a phase of exponential growth, which can be interrupted at any significant resistance. If a downward pullback begins, the price may drop to 154.70-1.53.60.

    META Share Price Collapses after Publication of Quarterly Report
    [​IMG]

    Just yesterday, META's stock price closed at USD 493.50, up approximately 40% since the start of 2024 and up nearly 300% since the start of 2023.

    However, following the release of Meta's quarterly report, its shares plummeted to USD 400 in post-market trading, representing a decline of more than -15%.

    It is noteworthy that the report exceeded expectations in some of the main indicators:
    → earnings per share: actual = USD 4.70, forecast = USD 4.32;
    → revenue: actual = USD 36.4 billion, forecast = USD 36.1 billion.

    However, investors were disappointed by plans for the coming months, as Meta said second-quarter revenue would be between USD 36.5 billion and USD 39 billion, below the average estimate of USD 38.24 billion. This could be due to increased investment in developing AI-based products , which do not yet generate income.

    At pre-market today, the META share price is around USD 418.

    S&P 500 Rebounds after Negative GDP News
    [​IMG]

    Data released yesterday showed US GDP growth slowed to 1.6% in the first quarter of the year. According to ForexFactory: forecast = 2.2%, past value = 2.4%.

    Reaction to the news sent the S&P 500 mini stock index (US SPX 500 mini on FXOpen) sharply lower as market participants may fear a period of stagflation — a period when economic growth slows and inflation remains stubbornly high.

    Speaking at the Economic Club of New York on Tuesday, JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon warned investors: “Stagflation has the negative effect of lack of growth and inflation. It hurts profits, consumers and jobs. And yes, I think there is a chance it could happen again,” he said.

    However, this morning the 4-hour chart of the US SPX 500 mini shows that the stock market is recovering thanks to gains in Google and Microsoft, which reported strongly after the close of the main trading session.

    Google Share Price Rose Post-market to a New All-time Record
    [​IMG]

    Yesterday, after the close of the main trading session, a report on activities for the 1st quarter of Alphabet Inc. (Google's parent company) was published. The report was strong, exceeding investors' expectations.

    → Quarterly EPS = USD 1.89 (expected = USD 1.51), which represents a 15% increase year-over-year;
    → gross revenue = USD 80.539 billion (expected = USD 78.73 billion).

    It was the fifth straight quarter in which Alphabet beat analysts' expectations on both revenue and profit. But the main surprise was the company’s decision to start paying dividends and increase the amount allocated for share buybacks to USD 70 billion.

    According to Benzinga, Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai made a number of important announcements about the future:
    → The company's combined YouTube and Cloud business revenues will be USD 100 billion in 2024, indicating a growth rate of 25% in each of the next three quarters.
    → Pichai also expressed confidence in Alphabet's ability to manage investments in AI, announcing capital expenditures of USD 12 billion.

    As a result, the share price of Alphabet Inc. Class A (GOOGL) surpassed USD 180 in post-market trading, setting a new all-time record. In premarket trading today, GOOGL is trading around USD 176.

    USD/JPY: Rate Falls Rapidly after Exceeding Psychological Mark of 160 Yen Per Dollar
    [​IMG]

    Despite the fact that today is a holiday in Japan, the foreign exchange market is experiencing extreme volatility — wide candles are forming on the USD/JPY chart, and the rate briefly exceeded the psychological level of 160 yen per dollar, reaching a new high in 34 years.

    The weakening of the yen in the first hours of trading occurred against the background of the fact that:
    → On Friday, the Bank of Japan decided to leave interest rates at the same level = 0.1%.
    → At the same time, market participants did not hear clear signals from the Bank of Japan that the weakening yen would be supported.
    → On Wednesday, May 1, the Fed will announce its decision on the interest rate. It is also expected to remain unchanged at 5.5%, highlighting the difference in monetary policy between Japan and the United States.

    However, shortly after the yen surpassed the psychological level of 160.00, USD/JPY fell sharply to 155.50 and below — traders, according to Reuters, saw signs of intervention from Japanese financial authorities after a 13% increase since the beginning of the year.

    Let us recall that Tokyo previously intervened in the foreign exchange market in September and October 2022, when the US dollar exchange rate was about 146.00 and 152.00 yen, respectively.

    London Calling! FTSE 100 Stocks Flying High Once Again
    [​IMG]

    Back in 2021, which when looking at a physical calendar does not seem such a long time ago yet feels an epoch ago when considering the changes in global economies and the capital markets since then, the FTSE 100 index was making headlines full of superlatives and enthusiasm as it pushed its way through the 7,000 point mark for the first time ever.

    As that happened, investors and analysts alike were experiencing something of a sensory overload with so many exciting dynamics having taken place around the same time, including the notorious meme stock frenzy led by Reddit board groups, which dramatically affected the prices of certain entertainment stocks in the US and a deluge of relatively unheard of firms suddenly listing their stock on the NASDAQ exchange for multi-billion dollar valuations via SPAC entities.

    Alongside these headline grabbers was London's FTSE 100 rallying like never before, which was an interesting backdrop because London listed firms are often traditional, long-established bricks-and-mortar entities with decades of institutional stability behind them as opposed to the disruptors of the NASDAQ, and not susceptible to volatility caused by the self-styled market makers of the Reddit boards.

    CRON Stock Price Forms a Bullish Pattern ahead of the Report
    [​IMG]

    The Cannabis Stocks market has experienced a significant decline since its peak in the spring of 2019. The share of the Canadian company Cronos (CRON) then formed a high above USD 24, and trading yesterday closed at USD 2.55.

    However, even after the CRON share price fell 10 times, there are still reasons for optimism:

    → Cronos recently announced its first entry into the edible chocolate category with the introduction of Chocolate Fusions. Cronos' newest edible innovation was developed by an expert team of culinary experts, nutritional scientists and leaders in cannabis product development.

    → InvestorPlace named CRON to its list of top Cannabis Stocks to Consider Buying in Spring 2024. The argument is a reminder that Altria invested USD 1.8 billion in Cronos.
