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

The S&P 500 is trying to turn higher here after coming into the week looking like it may want to continue lower, at least in the near-term. The turn could start to carve out the right shoulder of an inverse head-and-shoulders pattern.

If this pattern were to eventually trigger, it would set the market up to trade to fresh record highs. There is still a lot of room, though, for this pattern to not reach the point of validation as it would need to climb above 4637 to have a shot at doing so.

The first level up to contend with (again) is the 200-day MA at 4496. The market is poised to have that battle today given pre-market futures are trading higher. Beyond that point there is any highly meaningful resistance until the trend-line off the record high, which isn’t until around 4575.

It will be important that the market holds this week’s current low at 4370 for the outlook to remain intact. A decline below 4370 won’t necessarily take out the inverse H&S scenario completely, but will certainly undermine its likelihood and increase the chances that we see a test or worse of the Feb low.

The Nasdaq 100 is looking very similar to the S&P 500 with the inverse head-and-shoulders potential, but is in a more vulnerable position given it sold off considerably more than the S&P and the Dow. It’s generally weaker posture makes holding this week’s current low at 13788 even more important. On the top-side there are gaps to fill, with the first at 14327.

The Dow Jones has a shot at challenging it’s the neckline of the inverse head-and-shoulders pattern this week. The trend-line off the highs and the 200-day at 35017 stand in the way first. To confirm a neckline breakout, a daily close above the March high at 35372 is preferred. A close above that threshold is seen as kicking off a run back to the old record high at 36952. The recent low at 34102 is an important one to watch to keep this outlook intact.

    • If you had left a limit order based on the previous margin requirement, it's likely the system would've adjusted it to match the new rate once it changed. This helps prevent any unexpected margin calls. However, it's always wise to double-check your orders, especially when there are fluctuations in margin requirements. 
    • Just look at CZ's impact on Binance or Gracy Chen's leadership at Bitget. It's incredible how a visionary leader can propel an organization forward. Gracy Chen's track record speaks for itself – fourfold growth in two years is no small feat! With her at the helm, Bitget could indeed be on track to reach new heights.
    • Hey, have you all heard about this zkLink Nova project? It's supposed to be some next-level technology for Ethereum and Layer 2 networks, and I've been looking into it. I'm telling you, this could be massive! Alright, let me break it down for you. zkLink Nova is like an "Aggregated Layer 3 zkEVM Rollup network" built on top of zkSync's ZK Stack. I know, it sounds super technical, but hear me out. Basically, it's a way to integrate all the liquidity and assets from Ethereum and different Layer 2 rollups into one unified platform. Now, why is that a big deal, you ask? Well, right now, all these networks are like separate islands, you know what I mean? Their assets and liquidity are fragmented, and we have to use questionable bridges to move stuff around. It's a complete mess, and it opens up security risks like crazy. But with zkLink Nova, they're using some fancy zero-knowledge proof magic to let us access the combined liquidity without needing to bridge assets! Can you imagine that? It's like having one massive, happy DeFi playground with all the toys under one roof. No more hopping around networks or dealing with shady bridge protocols. Just pure, unified liquidity and assets at our fingertips. The possibilities for dApp developers with that kind of power are insane! And get this – the zkLink team has already lined up over 60 partners to help steer this Layer 3 ecosystem! We're talking big names like Coinbase Ventures and Arrington Capital, who have already invested a whopping $23M into the zkLink ecosystem's development. I'm telling you, this Nova thing could be a game-changer for the Ethereum and Layer 2 space. It's like they're solving one of the biggest headaches we've had in DeFi with all these incompatible networks. Oh, and here's the kicker – the $ZKL token, which is the native token for the zkLink ecosystem, is now available for premarket trade on Bitget! This could be our chance to get in early on what might become the backbone of a whole new era of DeFi interoperability. But I want to know what you all think. Are you buying into the zkLink Nova hype? Or do you think it's just another overhyped project promising the moon? Let me know your thoughts in the comments!
