Nasdaq 100 Forecast: Index Looks to NVDA Earnings, Key Support

Nasdaq 100 Forecast: Index Looks to NVDA Earnings, Key Support

Nasdaq 100 Outlook:

  • The Nasdaq threatened the 7,500 level on Wednesday but enjoys nearby support that the Dow Jones and S&P 500 lack
  • That said, volatility has been rampant amid the ongoing trade war uncertainty, which could put the longer-term trend at risk

Nasdaq 100 Forecast: Index Looks to NVDA Earnings, Key Support

The Nasdaq 100 traded lower on Wednesday alongside a troubled Dow Jones and S&P 500. While all three indices fell under pressure, the Nasdaq enjoys a bounty of technical support nearby relative to the other indices. Paramount among these levels is the ascending trendline from December which will look to assist the Nasdaq’s climb.

In addition to August lows around 7,375, subsequent support will look to reside around 7,215. Should volatility persist and sentiment crumbles further, bears could look to push the tech-heavy Index down to June lows around 6,965. The area also marks the 50% retracement from December lows to July highs.

Turning to a constituent of the Index, chip-maker Nvidia (NVDA) will report earnings after the close on Thursday. Consequently, implied volatility for the stock is heightened at 7.8% and insight from one of the Nasdaq’s high-flyers could look to exert considerable influence on the Index.

As a leading member of the semiconductor sector, NVDA is afforded significant weight in the SOX ETF and any commentary on sector-specific themes would likely jolt the whole industry. That said, NVDA suffered a fall from grace in the fourth quarter of 2018, which it has yet to recover from. With tarnished sentiment, poor earnings could hit the stock particularly hard.

Either way, we can attempt to chart the stock’s expected price range following earnings on Thursday with data from Bloomberg. At 7.8%, implied volatility suggests NVDA shares could trade anywhere from $138 to $161.5 – an area that is largely devoid of significant technical levels. Nearby support may reside around $144.5 where price bottomed in February and March. However, price action in June suggests the line lacks significant technical merit and is unlikely to entirely stall a move derived from earnings.

On the other hand, resistance to the topside will look to reside around $165.25 – the 23.6% Fibonacci level marked by the stock’s 2018 high and low. Prior to the level, a pocket of open air slightly beneath $160 could look to accelerate NVDA gains if earnings impress.
