Spring Results: NASDAQ 100 Overtakes Bitcoin


This is how prices for popular exchange-traded assets changed from March 1 to May 31:
→ The price of the NASDAQ 100 increased by almost 20%
→ The price of the S&P-500 increased by almost 6%
→ The price of gold increased by almost 7%
→ The price of bitcoin increased by almost 14%
→ The price of Ethereum increased by almost 12%

For a long time, cryptocurrencies were the leaders of the spring market, but in May, the NASDAQ-100 made a sharp leap upwards, thanks to the soaring of the NVDA share price and the hype around artificial intelligence (AI).

What will happen in summer?

According to Citigroup analysts, there is a risk that the rally in US technology stocks will end as investors want to take profits.

Perhaps the hype around AI will decrease, as its widespread adoption should take time. Barclays analysts note that past game-changing technologies took several decades to show up at the level of the entire economy. Take electricity, automobiles, and refrigeration, for example – US labor productivity skyrocketed in the 1950s, 3-4 decades after these technologies were introduced.

However, the NASDAQ-100 chart looks bullish. The price has broken (1) up the median line of the ascending channel (shown in blue) and, from the point of view of the technical analysis of the NASDAQ 100, it is now worth focusing on a possible test of this breakdown. If it happens with a strong rebound, it will be a sign of a strong market. If the test happens and no strong bullish patterns follow, it will be a bearish threat to the NASDAQ 100 price.
