How will Q4 tech earnings match up with the last quarter?

Q4 tech earnings is here, with the FAANG+ companies once more in the spotlight.

Persistently hawkish Fed policy, rampant inflation and battered consumer confidence all mean subdued forecasts for Big Tech as share prices have widely remained sluggish in the final months of 2022.

Whatever happens with Q4 results, all eyes will be on the pace of rate hikes in 2023 as the Fed grapples with the dual threats of inflation and deepening recession. Can stocks withstand another year of tightening policy?

Can I short tech stocks?

If you think a tech company is going to miss estimates and fall in value, instead of hitting/exceeding estimates and rising in value, you can short it by selling its stock instead of buying it. With your FOREX.com account, you can select ‘sell’ instead of ‘buy’ in the platform.
