Market Overview: NASDAQ 100 Emini Futures
The NASDAQ Emini futures is at the high of the last two weeks. So, the question is – does the market go higher or reverse?
Every day of this short week was a bull bar. The market is also back above the daily exponential moving average (EMA), and 3 consecutive bull closes above EMA on daily chart for the first time since March. Even though the daily chart is in a second leg up since the June low, the second leg up this week is strong enough that there will likely be a third leg up. This should lead to at least slightly higher prices in the next couple weeks.

The Weekly NASDAQ chart
- This week’s Nasdaq Emini candlestick is a bull trend bar. It is a two-bar bull reversal, reversing last week’s bear bar.
- The market has tried making two pushes down – week of 6/13 and week of 6/27 and both reversed up. So unless there is a bear reversal bar again next week, the market may try in the other direction.
- Another positive for the bulls is that the bear bar last week is the first time since March that there hasn’t been a follow-though bear bar. If the bulls get a follow-through bull bar next week, it would be the first time since March that there are two consecutive bull bars.
- At the same time, the reversal that started the week of 6/13 is still likely a minor bull reversal since the 2nd bear leg that ended in May is so steep. The bulls will need a second entry buy after forming a good bull signal bar in the coming weeks.
- As mentioned in last week’s report, July will likely be a bull or doji month. So, the bull bar this week is a good start to the month for the bulls.
- The next target for bulls is the top of the most recent sell climax – 12899.25 and the weekly EMA in the same area.
- The bears would still like to make their target at the measured move (MM) down of the double bottom (DB) on monthly chart at 10946.25. This is still a viable target.
The Daily NASDAQ chart
- Friday’s NQ candlestick is a bull trend bar with small tails at the top and bottom.
- The market is back up above the daily EMA – with three consecutive bull closes above it (good for the bulls).
- Friday’s bar came close to last week’s high but did not close above it. If it had, it would have been a stronger case for the bulls.
- Still, the bull leg this week has been strong enough, that the market should get above last week’s high before it gets below last week’s low.
