This week was a monumental moment for U.S tech stocks, as they reached their previous all time high resistance / mountain peak around 7700, and for a brief moment surpassed this level making a new all-time intraday high around 7715. The week finished off with the highs at around $7690.
This week was also interesting as the index reached prior resistance area, while also hitting the bottom of the long term uptrend line that had been established in early 2016 on the weekly chart, signaling it hit two different resistance areas that have come together. This is significant as I'm expecting some volatility ahead with a pullback coming soon as a consequence of reaching these levels.
The other reason why I believe this, is that the weekly moving averages are quite stretched from the current price action. The current distance shown by the arrows is roughly the same distance as the previous separation before we saw the index pull lower.
Unlike the previous time this occurred, we saw a significant drop of close to 20% off the peak. I'm not expecting as big a fall to occur with the upcoming consolidation period ahead. One of the main reasons for the difference is that the FED has now completely performed a 180 turn on its monetary policy to appease the markets.
Based on the assumption of the continuation of global central banks to pump liquidity in the global markets, I'm looking for a more mild pullback and an eventual move soon to either the first support level area of 7375, or potentially a bigger move towards 7100 support area.
After we have seen several weeks of consolidation and the moving averages have had a chance to catch up to the price action, I would be looking to see the markets begin to attempt to move back to the prior resistance area of 7700, before it then makes another attempt to march towards a new all time high, with an eventual higher highs created.
