$NQ_F opened the week chopping sideways at the 55 ema forming a large bearish looking flag. If Monday's low cannot hold next support comes in at the upward trendline. Recovery of the 55 ema would be the first step towards a trend reversal.
$NQ_F hit the upward trendline target after losing the 55 ema. Price bounced from the target zone back above the 55 ema as shorts covered into the FOMC. Now in wait and see mode until after Powell speaks today.
$NQ_ F Very negative reaction the FOMC meeting. Trendline broke and the 55 ema failed. Price now at the Aug 25kth pivot. Potential move to the Aug 18th pivot and a full compound corrective move into the Aug 16 high from 2022. May see a gap fill this morning. I price fails to retrace more than 50% I see that as bearish.
$NQ_F failed to recover more that 50% yesterday and continued its bearish trend down to the Aug 18th pivot low. Bouncing now from deeply oversold conditions. If the Aug 18th pivot low is broken look for the full compound corrective move into the Aug 16th high. The two green boxes are down side targets and potential support. Trend reversal would not happen unless price reclaims the 55 ema.
