Nasdaq 100 has performed the highest daily close in 2023. Despite divergence on RSI the trend is up with short-term potential to the 1.382 projection at around 13,333. However, there is no strong resistance until around 13,670 and if Nasdaq 100 closes above 12,881 it is quite likely to cancel (trade out) the RSI divergence.
A close below 12,407 is likely to result in a trend reversal.

Dow Jones is in a short-term uptrend with potential to 0.618 retracement at 33,233 where also the 55 and 200 MA’s are coming down adding to the resistance. If Dow Jones manages to close above 33,573 the Index could extend uptrend to 34,342 – 34,712.
However, RSI is still negative so if Dow Jones slides back to close below strong support around 31,738 the Index resumes downtrend with a likely move to 30,192
