S&P 500 bounced strongly Thursday after dipping below support at 3,738. Followed through Friday gapping higher at the open. Likely to test the falling trend today and quite possible closing above it.

At the time of writing the US500 cfd (S&P 500 future) is testing its falling trend line. If breaking above US500 is likely to test 0.618 retracement at 3,986 and quite possibly also the 4.000 level.

Nasdaq 100 tested the falling (black) trend line from the upper side only to bounce off from it. Is it forming an Ascending triangle pattern? Regardless of that, 0.618 retracement and strong resistance at around 12,176 is likely to be tested in a day or two. If closing above S&P 500 could extend a relief rally to resistance at 12,893.
A close below 11,488 and Nasdaq will resume down trend to test June lows.

USNAS100 cfd (Nasdaq 100 future) is trading around its 55 SMA. Strong resistance at around 12,227. A close above could push USNAS100 to 12,500-12,985. If it gets rejected at the resistance at 12,227 and drops back below 11,449 June lows are likely to be tested.
