Nasdaq-100 ‘Stuck on an Island’
By, Simon Maierhofer
Tuesday December 09, 2014
The Nasdaq-100 bars painted a bearish reversal pattern in early December. We’ve just seen the effects of this reversal pattern, but as long as trade remains about this support, there’s no reason to worry.

On December 3, the Profit Radar Report took a closer look at the Nasdaq-100 and stated:

The Nasdaq-100 bars are painting a picture (almost looking like an island reversal) that’s similar to prior reversal patterns (see blue circles). This is a potential red flag, but unless support at 4,285 and 4,210 is broken, it’s premature to worry.”

The reversal pattern delivered again, like it did a couple of times earlier this year.

Thus far, the Nasdaq-100 found support at 4,216, so there’s no reason to worry.

Support at 4,209 is backed up by 4,180. Only a move below 4,180 may draw trade towards the open chart gaps.

The biggest open chart gap for the QQQ ETF (Nasdaq: QQQ) is at 100.26. We may not get there, but if we were, it likely would be a good buying opportunity. Overall, I expect new highs later this year or early next.

A move above 4,338 would invalidate the island pattern and point higher.
