Is NASDAQ Tiring?

August 4, 2020

Mish's Daily

By Mish Schneider

blankA few cautious flags were thrown up today in spite of the new all-time highs in NASDAQ

  1. The volume was light. After Friday's spike in volume, Monday QQQs saw below average daily volume.
  2. The momentum indicators that we use that measure tops, bottoms, and big trends show a divergence between momentum and price. The momentum on NASDAQs last trip to new highs on July 13th had higher momentum than today's, with a new all-time high.

    This type of divergence can often become a leading indicator that precedes a top. 
  3. Couple the lower volume with the divergence in momentum and one can conclude that the bulls are growing less enthusiastic.
  4. The last swing high  on July 13th was at 269.79, which became the 6-month calendar range high. That is yet another indicator we use that often becomes the top or bottom or launch pad for trading an instrument over the next 6 months. Monday's high was 270.15 but QQQs closed at 269.21 or under the 6-month calendar range high.
