Nasdaq Support Breaks

By -

I’m leading with the NDX and NQ charts this morning as they are driving the equities bus here. I posted my morning video for Daily Video Subscribers at theartofchart.net on twitter before the open and if you missed that you can see that here.

NDX broke back over the daily middle band on Friday and that break needed to be confirmed with another close over that on the next trading day, and NDX failed to deliver that yesterday, which was a bearish development. NDX daily chart:

SPX almost retested the all time high yesterday and came close enough for that to be the second high of a decent quality double top setup. RSI still pointing firmly down of course and if we break double top support at 2430.74 then the second high being lower increases the odds that this might be another bull flag forming. Mainly direction is about NDX/NQ here though. SPX daily chart:

The ES and NQ futures charts below were done after the RTH close for Daily Video Service subscribers at theartofchart.net. If you are interested in trying our services a 30 day free trial is available here.

NQ broke both rising wedge support and the weekly pivot overnight, which was a serious sign of weakness and may mean that the main decline that we are looking for to 5641 and lower has already started. If weekly pivot at 5768 converts to resistance this morning then NQ is likely on the way to 5641 in the near future. NQ Sep 60min chart:

There is still a possible triangle setup on ES here where this decline from yesterday’s highs is a backtest into the triangle before a thrust up into the all time high retest that we didn’t quite see yesterday. A break below 2427/8 kills that triangle option and opens the downside. ES Sep 60min chart:

TF has slightly broken rising megaphone support and needs to break weekly pivot and double top support to open the likely retracement back to 1393. The numbers are on the chart. TF Sep 60min chart:

The main decline that we have been looking for may well now have started, but bears still have some work to do on the downside to preclude possible upside as part of topping patterns on SPX/ES & NDX/NQ. 70% odds here that we head directly lower from here IMO, and the most important numbers that I am watching this morning are the NQ weekly pivot at 5768 and ES support at 2427/8.
