Summary: The Nasdaq 100 index is a short- and medium-term downtrend as bulls depart the US tech sector.
Yesterday's rout saw the Relative Strength Index break its short-term rising trend (as discussed in my monthly technical analysis webinar last week), and is likely to continue the bearish scenario despite divergence.
It's possible that we will not see any rebound before speculators prepare for a small Santa Claus rally .
We are in a de facto downtrend in the short and medium terms. There is not much hope for bulls at the moment. As things currently sit, a close above 7,200(!) is needed for the Nasdaq 100 to reverse the trend. The first warning of a trend reversal would be a close above yesterday’s high at 6,923, but it must be noted that I regard that scenario as unlikely.
