Despite no market-sensitive updates, investors are selling off Novonix shares today on a volume of 3.5 million shares at the time of writing, well ahead of the four-week average.
What’s happening with Novonix?
It’s not abundantly clear what is driving down the Novonix share price. However, in wider market moves, the S&P/ASX All Technology Index (ASX: XTX) is also down 6.23% today as tech shares take a beating.
This brings the index’s loss to 19% for the month, and 34% for the year to date. A wave of macroeconomic pressures appears to be weighing in, most notably inflation, interest rates, and tension in Europe.
As reported by the Motley Fool earlier this week, tech shares have continued to slide on a global scale, as these pressures continue to tighten the rope further.
The continued downturn in the American markets follows the US Federal Reserve’s decision to raise interest rates.
As such, analysts at Morgans have retained a hold rating on the stock, holding the view that not much has changed fundamentally for the company in spite of it taking a hit to its earnings from the listing.
