  • Are tech stocks turning around?
  • Can the world cope without Russian oil?
  • How we fared with property sector tips.

Market Summary

The graph below is of the NASDAQ Composite Index over the past 12 months. There has been a significant downturn since the beginning of April. However, it has recently broken the 12,000 support line after reaching a 52 week low point.

Huge technology companies such as Netflix (NASDAQ: NFLX) and Google (NASDAQ: GOOGL) have declined tremendously, but may be starting to recover, pushing up the NASDAQ market in turn.

Keep an eye out for the overall trend of the market because if it continues to increase, potential profits can be capitalised on. However, if it breaks the 12,000 line again, more bad times are expected to come.

What’s Trending

The EU has recently agreed to ban all Russian oil imports which come by sea, in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. The new sanctions could cut the amount of oil it buys from Russia by 90%.

Find out what impacts this will have on Russia, Europe and consumers who rely on the oil imports in this BBC News article.
