e-NDU (QQQ) Remains Vulnerable to AMZN


All of the action off of last Thursday’s new all-time high has the right look of an incomplete correction after a completed July upleg from the July 4 electronic low at 5560.25 (135.80) to the July 27 high at 5996.75 (145.96).

If the e-NDU (PowerShares QQQ ETF (QQQ)) breaks 5844.75 (142.30), the index will become increasingly vulnerable to a press towards targets of 5777 and 5725.

That said, as long as last week's lows in the vicinity of 5850 (142.50), the larger June-July high-level, base-like accumulation pattern remains intact, and, thus, potentially bullish, and points to upside targets of 6032 (146.30) and possibly to 6142.75 (148.77) thereafter.

In other words, e-NDU (QQQ) is in a transitional period as we speak-- either in the early phase of a developing deeper correction, or in a bullish digestion phase prior to launching into a new upleg to new all-time highs.

Right now, my sense is that we should watch Amazon.com, Inc. (AMZN) for clues.

If AMZN is unable to climb back above 1001 on a closing basis at a minimum, and unable to recover beyond 1033-1040 in general in the upcoming hours/days, then it should roll down towards 960-950, and possibly to 910-890 thereafter.

Right now, as AMZN goes, so goes the NDX and QQQ.
