Trends, Support, and Resistance

The Nasdaq dipped after the open but then recovered and traded in a tight range the rest of the day, closing near yesterday’s close.

If the index returns to the trend line from the 6/16 low, that would mean a +3.28% advance.

The five-day trend line points to a +0.88% gain for Thursday.

The one-day trend line is flat and points to a +0.2% gain for tomorrow.


The market continues to show uncertainty over future economic growth. More companies are beginning to scale back labor and purchases, adding more worries to the list. That’s all bad news, but now it also has some analysts predicting a 2023 rate cut from the Fed to fight against recession. Although Treasury bond prices rose, Corporate junk bond prices declined, signaling a move to safe-havens.

Stay healthy and trade safe!
