The US indices opened higher this Friday, following Thursday’s Thanksgiving Holiday. The Nasdaq 100 index was up nearly 1.2% and was approaching the 12,297 mark at the time of writing.
At this time, the market influences are the risk flows that dominated markets earlier in the week, as there are no major macroeconomic data releases today to impact markets strongly.
Technical Outlook for Nasdaq 100
Today’s 1.2% move resumes the uptrend after the break of the triangle to the upside. This is reinforced by the bounce from the 12163.4 support level. However, buying momentum needs to be sustained to take the pair above the 12400 support (just below the 9 November high at 12417.6). 12439.2 (all-time high) is the price to beat for buyers. A breach of this level could bring in the 161.8% Fibonacci extension of 12914.4 into view.
On the other hand, 12003.6 interacts with the upper boundary of the triangle and could serve as the initial support for a pullback. Below this area, 11820.4 and 11608.5 remain additional targets to the south. The triangle’s bullish continuation is invalidated if the price falls below 11176.3 (20 August, 30 September, and 20 October lows).
