Dow Jones, Nasdaq 100, S&P 500 Technical Outlook


Recommended Posts

U.S. INDICES TECHNICAL OUTLOOK:

  • Dow Jones also reclaimed its 200-day MA

S&P 500, Nasdaq, Dow Technical Forecast: The Big Plunge

DOW JONES, NASDAQ 100, S&P 500 TECHNICAL OUTLOOK

The S&P 500 has been relentlessly pushing higher since the mid-March low, and on that it has cleared the 200-day with relative ease and now above another set of resistance from Jan/Feb around 4595. The market is extended, but it’s hard to fight strong upward momentum.

This doesn’t make for an easy position for those looking to enter long as a retracement could set in at any time, but shorting doesn’t have any appeal too in the absence of substantial resistance. A pullback and hold around 4595 could do some good for a continuation trade.

If this scenario is to unfold it would be ideal that the market rests for a few days on or above support. This would help work off short-term overbought conditions and provide a floor for assessing risk on new entries.

The Nasdaq 100 just nudged above the 200-day moving average and is trading around the Feb peak at 15196. Momentum is strong, but we could see a retracement set in at any time. If long from lower levels, perhaps a trailing stop strategy would be a good idea. As far as new longs, looks best to wait, and as far as shorts are concerned nothing appealing about the current situation from where I sit.

The Dow Jones also climbed above its 200-day yesterday, and on that it has room to go before it runs into its next level of resistance around 35824. If we see a run to that point and reversal on a failure to climb above, it could offer a short set-up. On a dip watch how price reacts to the 200-day retest. A period of consolidation above the 200 could do the Dow some good.

    • One of the unique advantages I get from my gaming enthusiasm is to be exposed to cutting edge innovations in the gaming sphere. This time, I came across Altered State Machine (ASM), a project that seems to be shaking up the industry with it's decentralized AI protocol. With ASM, you own a unique AI "brain" represented as an NFT, complete with its own strengths, weaknesses, and potential for growth. Wild🔥...    So in 2023 FIFA cut ties with football gaming giants EA Sports and I am now wondering if it had anything to do with the new partnership with ASM cos I can easily see how that played out. ASM has also partnered with iconic brands like Muhammad Ali and ABG, showcasing the potential of AI in the gaming industry.  But ASM isn't the only player in the AI gaming space. Competitors like Alethea AI and SingularityNET are also exploring the potential of AI in gaming making it an interesting horse race. However, ASM's focus on NFT ownership, interoperability, and big partnerships is giving it a unique edge at the moment.    From what I understood, ASTO is going to be the lifeblood that fuels the ASM ecosystem. It will power various aspects like gameplay, training fees, and even NFT sales. Owning ASTO gives you a stake in this dynamic ecosystem and it will be listing on Bitget with each users able to grab up to 1,250 ASTO. I have to say AI gaming is evolving rapidly, and ASM is a frontrunner. So, keep an eye on this space, guys - the future is intelligent, and it's gonna be exciting!
    • I think we should brace ourselves for the Ethereum ecosystem bull run as the much-hyped Dencun upgrade, initially slated for earlier, is now making its grand entrance in March 2024. Analysts are buzzing with excitement, foreseeing Ethereum (ETH) and its ecosystem projects stepping into the spotlight as the main actors of the next bullish surge. If all goes according to plan, this upgrade could unleash the full potential of the Ethereum ecosystem.   https://consensys.io/ethereum-upgrade   Just a month ago, the Total Value Locked (TVL) in most Ethereum Layer 2 (L2) protocols skyrocketed to all-time highs, with Optimism, Arbitrum, and Metis leading the charge. Following this surge came a wave of gaming projects flocking to the chain, banking on Ethereum to revolutionize gaming experiences and slash those pesky transaction fees.   The ETH price action is sending vibes reminiscent of Bitcoin’s pre-ETF era. As we eagerly await the potential approval of an ETH spot ETF in May, the “Decun” upgrade emerges as another game-changer. Analysts draw parallels between the impact of this upgrade on ETH and the transformative “Fire-Dancer” upgrade on SOL (Solana). In anticipation of these game-changing events, we’re witnessing a flurry of activity, with more L2 and gaming projects sprouting up on the Ethereum chain. OKX is already test-driving a promising L2 chain dubbed X1, while Bitget contemplates building a blockchain to amplify the utility of its Ethereum-based token, BGB. Not to be left behind, Binance has seamlessly integrated Optimism into its smart chain with opBNB.   In just one whirlwind month, a plethora of Ethereum-based projects have burst onto the scene, boasting impressive price actions upon listing—think STRK, MAVIA, NADA, ASTO, and the list goes on.   With ETH soaring above $3k and the charts painting a picture-perfect bull trend (even the likes of OP and ARB notching up multiple all-time highs), it’s time to ask: What are your expectations? Do you believe in the staying power of these new projects, or are they just fleeting sparks in the crypto cosmos? Strap in, folks, because the ride is just getting started!
    • A couple of years back in the crypto space, it was relatively uneasy for beginner traders, with time we have noticed the evolution of well structured frameworks like Copy Trading. Certain platforms have brought forth immensely good copy trading frameworks. Currently, Bitget is heralded as one of the best platforms. Per a PnL publication by the CEX there is a copy trader who made about $7,000 from trading $XRP. This is pretty mind blowing. Quite often, I have advised newbie and inexperienced to leverage on copy trading as means of earning while sharpening their edge. The afore profit amassed by a single trader is a testament to how beneficial copy trading is. With its recent growth, Copy trading seems like a buzzword which is too difficult to participate in, however you can participate in it by simply following an elite trader on Bitget. Once you hop on the homepage of the app you are greeted with its emblem, you just need to follow the prompts. By keenly taking part in this, you could get to rake as much profits as the trader who made a whopping $7,000.
