Dow Jones, S&P 500, Nasdaq 100 Forecast: Stocks Staring at New Highs

Momentarily the S&P 500 broke the old high created in September, tagged the trend-line from October 2020, and then sprung higher. The volatility around the old high and trend-line were cues that something like this could happen.

The October trend-line, which previously had the bare minimum to make up a trend-line given it had only two connecting points, has now been validated as a truly meaningful line of support. Should we see a revisit of that line in the near future it could hold a good risk/reward opportunity for fresh longs.

Right now a test of the trend-line doesn’t look likely. Stocks are strong and near highs, in aggregate. The momentum has been fierce coming out of the low, which is normal, now stock momentum is likely to diminish as new highs come into focus. A new record will be recorded once the SPX breaks 4743.

For now, looking for stocks to trade to new highs, it appears a Santa rally may be in the works. Until we see pervasive price action that takes out key line and levels, there appears to be no reason to be bearish at this time.

The Dow Jones behaved around the 200-day moving average in very typical fashion. This is what was said last week, “We may see a solid push through the 200 initially, tag off of support below, then reversal higher.” That is exactly what happened. On Dec 1 we saw a slice through the 200-day to support beneath it followed by a recovery beginning the following day. The current leg higher is set to run with less steam, but look for the old high at 36565 to come into play. Since April the Dow may undergoing a broadening top type of sequence, but we’ll leave that on the backburners until it becomes more relevant. For now, staying the course on the upside.

The Nasdaq 100 was putting in a head-and-shoulders pattern around the top of a channel dating to September 2020, but that idea was quickly put to rest once the old high in September was met and held. A top-side test here will be interesting, because it will mean that the top of the channel is coming under pressure again. Can the NDX leave the gravity of the channel, or will it continue to keep the rally contained? It’s a big question, because once price escapes the top of these kind of patterns we can see an impressive acceleration unfold thereafter.

    • Asian markets followed the US lead and moved lower, as Fed speakers continued to dutifully follow Jerome Powell in reiterating the need for more rate increases. However, a more optimistic tone may prevail in Europe on the open, helped along by an upgraded forecast on Chinese growth from Barclays. A slip-up from Alphabet's new chatbot Bard meant that shares in the search giant fell sharply, dragging the S&P 500 lower, while Disney soared after earnings, though a promise to cut 7000 jobs reinforces the growing trend of layoffs in corporate America. Another quiet day lies ahead, with just weekly jobless claims on the calendar.   
    • Binance Coin experienced consistent growth throughout January 2023 and was able to overcome the $315 resistance level in the first few days of February 2023. Since November 2022, there has been noticeable resistance at this level. A move above it therefore portends more gains. Recent research emphasised BNB's recent strong market performance as well as the fact that the use of the exchange token was increasing. The trend is favourable for bitcoin as well. Therefore, another upward move for Binance Coin may be the way forward, barring a BTC dip below $22.3k. Lower timeframe bullish sentiment gathers strength BNB's price is $44.0000000 (15.34%) above its 100-day moving average price of $286.790000000 as its price at the moment sits at $330.780000000. The current trading price in relation to its long-term average along with its 52-week high and low, gives BNB an average long-term technical score of 63. Long-term trading movement of BNB suggest that investors are neutral on the coin at the moment. BNB has a total market value of $52,230,903,062.37 with an high average daily volume of $4,213,665,495.84 worth of the currency exchanged over a typical 24 hour period. As of the past 24 hours, BNB's volume is below its average with $515,876,894.06 exchanged in total. BNB Coin Price will reach $360? When exactly a bullish breakout would start is unknown. The available data suggests that an upward shift is more probable. A drop below $321.5, which would turn the lower timeframe market structure bearish, would invalidate this theory. In this case, there can be a bullish response to a retest of the $315 level.  If the upgrades of the network manage to push the price action. Then we can expect the Binance coin price prediction to rally to $340.65 by the end of 2023 as per coinpedia.
