Dow Jones & Nasdaq 100 Technical Forecasts for the Week Ahead

Dow Jones & Nasdaq 100 Technical Forecasts for the Week Ahead

Peter Hanks, Strategist

Dow Jones & Nasdaq 100 Forecasts: Mixed


Dow Jones Technical Forecast

Outlook: Bullish (At Risk of Consolidation)

The Dow Jones tagged a new record last week after the Industrial Average broke above prior highs and rocketed toward 35,000. With encouraging fundamentals behind it, the Dow can look to extend its charge higher and enjoys minimal overhead resistance. On the other hand, past highs and prior resistance may serve as support going forward if broader risk aversion spikes.

If anything, the Dow is at risk of overextension but since few things are more technically encouraging than new all-time highs, stamping a bearish outlook on the index would be rather presumptuous at this time. Still, traders should exercise caution when considering long exposure in the Dow Jones and profit-taking may be warranted after recent gains.

The Trend is Your Friend: Forex Trendlines

That being said, the longer-term outlook remains constructive as long as the Dow trades above the upper-bound of its ascending channel from June. A break beneath the trendline and 34,000, both of which reside roughly 3.2% beneath Friday’s close, could see the index fall into range-bound price action.

Nasdaq 100Technical Forecast

Outlook: Neutral

The Nasdaq 100 was absent during last week’s record-setting run as technology stocks succumbed to fundamental concerns and the index struggled with resistance. Initial support around the 13,730 mark was broken early last week as the index fell further and sought out secondary assistance around the 13,400 mark. The supplementary zone coincides with prior highs established throughout March and is a formidable technical level at this stage.

Nasdaq 100 Chart

Price action late last week would suggest the Nasdaq 100 has regained its footing for the time being. That said, Friday’s close is dangerously close to support and a volatile start to trading in the week ahead could see price gap above or below the level with ease. Either way, it can be argued the Nasdaq is exhibiting early signs of range-bound trading.

To the topside resides the potential range’s upper limit around the index’s all-time high at 14,075 followed by the midpoint around 13,730 and the lower limit near 13,400. While the Dow Jones looks to continue higher, the Nasdaq 100 may have to negotiate resistance before it can join in on the rally.
