Nasdaq-100 Cash (NDX)

Nasdaq-100 Cash (NDX)SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend
Tim Ord

Today the Nasdaq 100 (NDX) rallied strongly into our targeted area near 1810 range. We have been targeted the 1810 for the last couple of weeks in that a significant high volume gap form their on 2/27. Most large high volume gaps are tested. High volume Gaps are also like magnets, drawing the market towards them. Once the market gets to the gap the gap turns into resistance. Today’s test is just a bit short getting into the gap level but tomorrow most likely the gap will be tested. If the gap at the 1810 range is tested on 10% or greater lighter volume, and then close below the gap level, a sell signal will be triggered. We have an intermediate term sell signal in force now and the gap test will be a shorter term sell signals.

On chart is of the Nasdaq 100 in the Ord-Volume format. The Ord-Volume format takes the average daily volume in each leg and display that result on the graph with a line chart. The average daily volume in a leg measures the energy that leg has. By comparing the up leg and down leg energy you can see which way the market is pushing. Referring to the Ord-Volume chart, a big expansion of energy came in on the February decline which increased 26% from the previous up leg and shows the trend has turned from up to down. The current rally leg has 21% less energy then the previous down leg and shows the down leg is still dominant and in force. The gap is being tested so far on 30% less volume and implies the gap will hold as resistance. If volume does not pick up to 318m shares tomorrow a sell signal will be triggered.

Today’s is Spring Equinox and can mark significant turns in the market. We are expecting the market to be down most of this year. We have an intermediate term downside target to the 1400 on the NDX which is a 22% decline from current levels.
