2. Hot Market Report: NASDAQ resuming the sell off?

By Ilan Levy-Mayer, VP

Click on image below to enlarge

NASDAQ futures; Stock index futures in general, and the NASDAQ 100 specifically have gone through a wild ride, to say the least. Since the historic day on Feb. 5th, we have seen the market bounce back almost all the way to pre sell off levels!! but that did not last long and recently the market resumed the downtrend. GeoPolitical events, Domestic budget concerns, trade wars are a few factors to name. This week's FOMC confirmed higher rates this year and going forward which is also affecting the markets. Throw in some Facebook ( FB) scandal to the mix ( data mining hasn’t been an issue when the US Government does it) and you’ve got a recipe for a possible test of the lows we made on Feb. 9th.
Daily chart of the mini NASDAQ 100 market for your review above. Notice the blue line. The way I view the chart, as long as we hold below that level ( approx. 6848) the market is on the bearish side. This is my opinion. This chart was prepared using our CQG Q trader software, which you can demo for 14 days with realtime data.
Our brokers here at Cannon will be happy to chat about different markets, options, futures spreads and much more! Feel free to contact us at any time.
