The S&P 500 is trading near a key level, which could indicate further declines

The S&P 500 is flirting with its 200-day moving average, and a drop below that level would signal more selling.

The 200-day was at 3,940 Thursday, and the index fell below that level but recovered on Wednesday. The S&P 500 was trading near that level Thursday morning.

The 200-day is the average of the last 200 closing prices and is considered a momentum indicator for a stock or index. Stock chart analysts consider it a negative signal if the index closes below that level and stays below it.

As labor costs rise, unemployment claims fall

The amount businesses paid workers for production increased in the fourth quarter, fueling the impression that inflation is still a problem for the U.S. economy.

Unit labor costs rose 3.2% in the October-December period, the Labor Department said on Thursday. That beat the Dow Jones estimate for a 1.6% increase.

The increase came from a 4.9% rise in hourly compensation and a 1.7% increase in productivity, which was less than the 2.5% estimate.

In other economic news, jobless claims fell to 190,000 in the week ended February 18, down 2,000 from the previous period and below estimates of 195,000. Continuous claims fell by 5,000 to 1.655 million.

Both data points indicate the Federal Reserve is on track to raise its key interest rate by at least another 0.25 percentage point when it meets later this month.

“On Investor Day, TSLA is targeting a 50% cost reduction for its next-gen model,” Wells Fargo analyst Colin Langen wrote. “However, timeframe and pricing details were scarce, and the event lacked a TSLA-like surprise. With high expectations, we expect the stock to trade lower.”

Watch for the 3,900 level on the S&P 500, says JP Morgan

According to a note from JPMorgan’s trading desk, the recent market sell-off threatens to break the S&P 500 below a key benchmark level.

“S&P 500 Index slide from expected resistance in 4100s threatens key chart levels around 3900,” the note said. “A move through that support, in our view, has strong potential to accelerate bearish price pressures.”

The S&P 500 tests key support levels

The S&P 500 closed Wednesday at 3,951.39. In the past month, the broader market index has fallen 5.5%.

“Even after the recent pullback, the S&P 500 index still appears overvalued relative to the shape of the money market curve,” the JP Morgan note said. “An 18-month relationship using the expected terminal rate and the cumulative relaxation price after reaching the terminal rate, currently shows the index fair value below 3800.”

JP Morgan downgraded Neo

Neo shares fell 1% in premarket after JP Morgan downgraded the electric vehicle maker to neutral from overweight.

“Despite management on the closing call saying they only missed out on older models (ie the ES6, ES8 and EC6 on the new platform before the new models arrived in 1H23), our concern is that 1Q23 margins may trend further down (JPMe vehicle gpm around 5%) while 2Q23 “The extent of the improvement from 2016 to 2018 would be shy of Street expectations given a challenging competitive environment,” JP Morgan said.

“Furthermore, we note that our 2023 delivery forecast (190k units or 56% growth) is lower than management’s ambitious target (240- 250k, doubling from 122 in 2022),” the bank added.
