Dow Jones, Nasdaq 100, S&P 500 Forecasts for the Week Ahead
Indices Technical Forecast:
- S&P 500 has the March 2020 trend-line in sight as support
- Dow Jones continues to act the best out of the major indices
- Nasdaq 100 weakest, has substantial trend-line support
S&P 500 Technical Forecast
The S&P 500 has been sluggish lately, but isn’t showing any real signs of weakness which bodes well for higher prices. Should we see some weakness from here, though, the March 2020 trend-line will quickly come into play. As long as that holds then the outlook will remain generally neutral to bullish, with the record high at 4238 next up as resistance.
To turn the outlook bearish, a break of the March 2020 trend-line will be needed first, and for things to really turn south a lower low below 4056 will need to develop. But for now, focus is on the near-term range and maintaining above the March trend-line. New Record highs may be around the bend. We could see an ascending wedge form between the long-term trend-line and record high, a development that will require a bit more backing-and-filling first.

Dow Jones Technical Forecast
The Dow Jones has both the March 2020 trend-line and June 2020 slope at its feet, but will require a bit more of a drop to get there than what it will take for the S&P 500. On the top-side the record high at 35091 will be in focus as resistance.

Nasdaq 100 Technical Forecast
The Nasdaq 100 is the weakest of the big three U.S. indices, but is trying to go through a resistance level it has been unable to take out the past couple of weeks. To get the record high at 14073 back in focus a breakout above 13814 is needed. A drop below 13458 will have the March 2020 trend-line and September slope in focus as support.
