The Nasdaq 100 has been declining out of a head-and-shoulders pattern that was discussed not long ago, but if support has anything to do with it then it may be a truncated move. Support via the bottom-side of a one-year-long channel is coming up quickly.
How price behaves around a level is more important than the level itself. If we see a volatile reversal or bounce followed by a successful retest, something that indicates a exhaustion in selling then we could post a low that sticks.
We will respect support until broken, but it is possible with seasonality and the newsflow not favorable that we see a break below support outside of the bullish channel. In the event we do, then we could be entered a period of extended weakness.
Again, important to see how price behaves here as an important inflection point nears.
