Nasdaq 100 (US100): continues its bearish trend towards 16600.

2024-01-16 • Updated

  • Primary Scenario: Sales below 16767 / 16838 (wait for a return to these levels) with targets at 16615.70 and 16513.72 as an extension. It is recommended to set a stop loss (S.L.) above 16870 or at least 1% of the account capital**.

  • Alternative Scenario: Buys above 16730 with targets at 16766 and 16838 as an extension. It is advised to place a stop loss below 16683 or at least 1% of the account capital**. A trailing stop can be used.

Scenario from the H1 chart:

The price structure shows a bearish reversal pattern as it fails to create a new high and stays below the December resistance and the current historical high at 16991.25, leaving a series of uncovered selling zones (orange lines).

Monday's resistance, which today coincides with the daily bullish average range at 16893.13, also fails to create a new high. Therefore, a bearish continuation is expected with a target at the break of the 16615.70 support, near the bearish average range after the retracement.

Before the descent towards the indicated support, a brief rebound is expected in reaction to a buying zone from Thursday, January 11, heading towards the uncovered POC of the early sessions of the day at 16766, from where the selling will resume.

Only a decisive breakout (candle body) from the area around 16770 will extend the rebound towards the opening of the day and the week at 16835, which is also a selling zone expected to be defended by the bears. The RSI confirms bearish momentum by being in negative territory close to oversold.

*Uncovered POC: POC = Point of Control: It is the level or zone where the highest volume concentration occurred. It is considered a selling zone if previously there was a bearish movement from it. If previously there was a bullish impulse, it is considered a buying zone.
