“The Ibex 35, for its part, remains close to the psychological zone of 9,000 points, at the top of the consolidation phase that it has been developing in recent weeks, on whose overcoming depends that we can attend an approach to 9,300 points”, adds the expert in technical analysis
“Rebounds on the sidelines, we continue to expect falls that could be directed at least towards the 4,070 / 4,030 points of Eurostoxx and the 15,540 / 15,420 points of Dax, whose scope would most likely provoke buyer interest and from where we would already begin to consider taking new positions, ” he concludes the strategist of the investment strategies portal of elEconomista .

The US selective currently presents a profit multiplier of 22.5 times if the estimates for 2021 are taken into account and 20.5 times if the forecasts for 2022 are taken. When the vaccine began to be listed, the PER was at 20 Sometimes, to what extent this ratio would justify a profit-taking if a message is misinterpreted in Jackson Hole.
Ecotrader’s recommendation: “Wait”
“As long as there is no closer approximation to the July lows that offers us a more attractive return / risk equation , operationally, we would not move too much,” recommends the Ecotrader team of analysts.
