US500 cfd Bullish trend with potential to 4,818

Nasdaq 100 has resumed uptrend after a minor correction that saw the Index testing the upper band of the gap area at 15,744. A bullish move to 2.00 (200%) projection of both the October sell-off and the minor correction last week are indicating a short-term target of around 16,610-16,637.

However, all-time highs at around 16,765 could be reached sometime around Christmas and New Year.

A close below 15,744 will demolish the bullish scenario and a close below 15,535 i.e., a closing of the gap area will reverse the trend
