Market Analysis: Nasdaq 100 Tests Important Support

FXOpen

FactSet agency notes a disturbing feature of the current reporting season in the US stock market: if a company publishes a report that exceeds forecasts, its share price does not react with a price increase, which should be expected. This hasn't happened since August 2011, when the stock market fell over 15% in 2 weeks.

This behavior may suggest that the stock market is overbought (due to the AI boom), and a reason to more closely monitor the nature of the test of the 15,280 support level by the price of the Nasdaq 100. The Nasdaq 100 daily chart gives hints that the bears are seizing the initiative:

→ the price of the index has formed a head-and-shoulders pattern;

→ the price goes down to the lower half of the rising channel;

→ since July 19, the chart shows 2 lower tops and 2 lower lows.

If the bears break through the level of 15,280, the next target could be the psychological level of 15,000, in the area of which the lower border of the ascending channel that operates this summer passes — this block can provide significant support.
