Crypto Market Barometer released on

  Crypto Market Barometer released Today I published my simple but easy-to-read Crypto Market Barometer on our website Click here to get to the new Crypto Market Barometer. This is how the main chart looks like: What's behind the new Crypto Market Barometer We believe that one simple but effective method of gauging the health of a market is to look at how many of the most important individual assets trade above their important SMAs. Since SMAs are a proven way of determining the current trend, a market must be in an uptrend, if more than 50% of its biggest assets trade above their long-term SMAs. If they trade below their long-term SMAs, they must be in a downtrend. For the crypto market, I decided to check the popular BitPanda Crypto Index BCI10. It contains the 10 biggest crypto currencies by market capitalization, and frankly, by only looking at BitCoin, Ethereum, Polkadot and maybe Binance, we already have most of the market covered (again, in

NASDAQ 100 following a strong trendline

NASDAQ 100 following a strong trendline

I've been covering the NASDAQ 100 multiple times during the last days as you've seen. The reason for this is that this leading tech index shows an incredible strength despite the Tapering discussions and the various risks which emerged during the last weeks.

Together with you, I want to understand where the chances and risks are for this index.

NASDAQ 100 Chart


The image above shows a simple NASDAQ 100 chart with the leading trendlines.

As you can see, there is a corridor limited by a supporting trendline and a line which might be a resistance line. The index has touched this upper line multiple times and has been trading just beneath it for four days in a row.

I believe that this trendline is of great importance and chances are high that the NASDAQ 100 will not cross it soon (just my personal opinion).

At the moment, this trendline also crosses the upper border of the Envelopes, so there is even another resistance level there.


NASDAQ 100 Market Breadth Data Visualization

As usually, let's look at the market breadth data for NASDAQ 100:

Speaking of Envelopes, it is clear that the NASDAQ 100 again remained within the upper Envelopes bands. Usually, this is considered as an overheated signal on the short time frame.

The Advance Decline Line marked another high while the index itself did not - we have a very small divergence here.

The Advanced vs. Declined Data meets the expectations for a trading day with almost no gains or losses.

The McClellan Oscillator for NASDAQ 100 is still positive and therefore bullish.

The McClellan Summation Index for NASDAQ 100 remains negative, but is continuously moving upwards, which is a good sign. Please understand that the negative scale for this indicator is a bit misleading. I started generating breadth data for the NASDAQ 100 just a few weeks ago, which is why the McClellan Summation Index started on a low level. Please ignore the negative scale for now and try to see the current state of this indicator in a relation to the last trading days. If I had started generating breadth data for this index earlier, this indicator would have been on a positive scale.

Chances and risks for NASDAQ 100

At the moment, the ratio of risk and possible returns is bad because NASDAQ 100 is on a very high level compared to the last weeks. Chances might be limited due to the upper trendline and the Envelopes for now. Market breadth supports the general bullish sentiment, but gives no clear entry signal now (the last signal was a while ago). Maybe it is a good idea to wait for a setback.
