Nasdaq 100 gives back more gains
Losses continue here, with yesterday’s drop further eating into the gains made from the August lows. The price is currently sitting on the 100-day SMA, and a close below this opens the way in short order to 14,690. Below this, the August low at 14,500 comes into view. From here, the next major level to watch would be the August 2022 high at 13,722.
A rally above 15,300 would be needed to suggest that the buyers have succeeded in reasserting control.
