Nasdaq 100 Price Analysis — September 29

Nasdaq 100 Price Analysis — September 29

The Nasdaq 100 (NDX) grew by 1.9% at the start of this week in a continuation of Friday’s surge, as the index sought to end its 4-week-old retrace.

The rally this week was broad-based, with the usual suspects like Apple (NASDAQ: APPL) and Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) topping the charts. The financial and energy sectors were also strongly bullish yesterday and helped in boosting the performance of the S&P 500 (SPX).

While the rally cannot be attributed to just one factor, many analysts have cited the drawn-out debacle over another round of COVID-19 stimulus as the major factor.

They also cited that a technical factor had a bolstering effect on the index on Friday. The NDX broke above the strong 11000 psychological area followed by the month-old descending trendline around 11200.

Regardless, the technical factor will take the second seat to the fundamental landscape, which is poised to see the release of the Micron (NASDAQ: MU) earnings today and the US Jobs data scheduled for Friday.

That said, NDX traders will be looking for key takeaways from the Micron report set for later today, as the data is expected to have a significant influence on the price dynamics of the Nasdaq 100 today. After that, attention, across markets, will be shifted to the US Non-Farm Payrolls report.

The NDX has rebounded healthily from the 10842 support and has found some balance above 11300. As mentioned earlier, Nasdaq 100 has broken above the prevailing descending trendline and is now heading for the 11650 resistance.
