12000 will imply a 50% gain from an important 8000 . Which how much Nasdaq made during the 2016-2017 bull market.
15000 is needed if Nasdaq is going to have a major correction of about 30-40% (which will eventually happen in the future).
It will be nice for Nasdaq to go to 15000, and then have a major correction to retest 10000.
Even if that happens, that doesn't mean the Parabola is over, you only know that it is over AFTER the effect.
In fact, it is NORMAL for a something that is going Parabolic to have 30-40% correction on the way up.
And many people will believe that will be the ultimate crash, ending up as a bear trap to trap people into shorting the market.
Never undermine the power of bull forces and parabolic moves.
I believe that a recession will happen and a major correction of 30-40% will happen, but that alone is not enough to signal the ultimate top for the stock market for the next few decades.
Current level is still conservative considering that it was 5000 back in the year 2000, 20 years ago. A major generational top will be something like 50000.
Therefore, I will continue looking for opportunities to play in the market, finding the next 10-20 baggers in the market and continue to grow my wealth in the era of Industrial Revolution 4.0 at the expense of most people missing out on this generational shift.
Well, education comes at a price. Only people who has studied the market and done extensive research and also filtering out the noises will be the winner. The rest will be a net loser.
Highly optimistic and on technology in general.
