Technical Analyst, Saxo Bank Group

The Nasdaq 100 closed on Friday right at the crucial support level of 17,808. If it closes below this level, it could trigger a sell-off towards the next support at around 17,478, with a potential drop to approximately 17,000.

The bearish engulfing top and reversal pattern is still a significant factor, and a close above its peak at 18,417 is required to negate this pattern and signal a resumption of the uptrend.

Over the past two months, the RSI has been showing divergence, which needs to be resolved either by closing below 40 threshold or by making a new high. The more likely scenario seems to be a close below the 40 thresholds, indicating a possible correction down to around 17,000

S&P 500. The bearish engulfing top and reversal pattern is also in play here. To negate this pattern, the index would need to close above its peak at 5,190.
S&P 500 is currently testing the rising trendline, and a close below the key support at 5,057 is critical. If it closes below this level, the index could hit byu a sell-off down to around 5,000.

The RSI divergence observed over the past two months needs to resolve by either closing below 40 or achieving a new high.

The US500 CFD is still above the rising trendline. A break below could lead to the US500 testing the support at 5,048, with a further drop possibly leading to a sell-off down to between 5,000 and 4,900.

Conversely, a break above 5,189 would suggest an uptrend continuation.
