Nasdaq 100 Index (NDX) Chart

The Nasdaq 100 Index (NDX) and related ETF (QQQ) can make a bit more upward progress after Monday’s big rally.

The NDX closed right near the highs of Monday’s range, something that likely will lead to a bit more near-term strength this week before this bounce runs its course.

As detailed in recent days, the NASDAQ has stabilized a bit and Tech has acted better than the broader market, thanks to Technology Hardware stocks. And Monday confirmed this. However, there is still much to prove.

The Bottom Line: I don’t expect a move back to highs, but rather a move to the 50% or 61.8% Fibonacci retracement of the September decline. That area should provide an attractive risk/reward to sell into.
