Chart of the day: NASDAQ retraces recovery rally


The US NASDAQ Composite lost 2.2% for Wednesday's session.  Also, the fall through 4500 generated a bearish P&F Breakout signal on the automated scanner.  The market had been enjoying a recovery, having languished in oversold territory for most of the month, from prior support at the August floor (4292.14).  A push past 4600 is now required to remove the risk of an additional retracement of the recent rebound.



Daily Comment:


In contrast, the US S&P 500 index had produced a bullish P&F Breakout signal, on the move through 1910.  However, the market did not maintain that breakout, finding intraday resistance at 1916.99.  In fact, unless that level is cleared beforehand, there is some danger of a further retreat back towards the recent low at 1812.29. 

The RSI indicator for Brazil's Bovespa index has been in oversold ground for most of the month.  Finally, there is some signs of life in the market, which recorded a 2.3% gain yesterday.  That said, though, a more dynamic up move would be needed to signal scope for a further recovery towards the sideways region around 45000. 

Russia's Trading System $ index has posted a 5.2% gain for today's trading.  The market has restarted the recovery from oversold after a brief pause.  We would point out the potential resistance near 750, from the 50-day MA line.  Otherwise, the next chart target is the mid to late-December ceiling at 795.16.

In contrast, Chinese Shanghai indices appear on the 'Losers' list.  We continue to hold a short trade in the B version, which shed 1.7%, as it reasserted the decline towards the August/September floor around 280.
