Nasdaq 100 (NDX) Heads Down For the 2nd Consecutive Day; Breaks Below 20 Day Average

The Hourly View for NDX

Last Updated May 4, 2021, 04:019 GMT

At the time of this writing, Nasdaq 1000’s price is up 7.21 (0.05%) from the hour prior. This is a reversal of the price action on the previous hour, in which price moved down. If you’re a trend trader, consider that the strongest clear trend on the hourly chart exists on the 20 hour timeframe. Price action traders may also wish to note that we see a pin bar candlestick pattern on Nasdaq 1000. Given that we see downtrend on the 20 and 10 hourly candle timeframe, and that such candlestick patterns often denote reversals, this may be worth noting. Of note is that the 200 hour changed directions on NDX; it is now pointing up. The moving averages on the hourly timeframe suggest a choppiness in price, as the 20, 50, 100 and 200 are all in a mixed alignment — meaning the trend across timeframes is inconsistent, indicating a potential opportunity for rangebound traders.

    @DipBuyPanic @federalreserve the Fed only has blunt tools that drive up the Nasdaq 100 only.

    Dow Jones, Nasdaq 100, S&P 500, DAX 30 Forecasts for the Week Ahead: A strong earnings season has equipped investors with fresh optimism but price action may struggle to post progress as seasonal headwinds pick up in the month of May. As a result, gains may slow.

  • From KelvinSCWong:

    Good morning Asia! All major US stock indices started May with a positive footing with the exception of Nasdaq 100 as tech/growth underperformance took shape. Recall in our Q2 theme play; cyclical/value outperformance intact; growth/EV underperformance. So far it is playing out
