E-mini NASDAQ-100 Index (NQ) Futures Technical Analysis – Short-Term Strength Over 7551.00, Weakness Under 7536.25

Based on Monday’s close at 7561.25, the direction of the September E-mini NASDAQ-100 Index early Tuesday is likely to be determined by trader reaction to the major Fibonacci level at 7551.00 and the short-term pivot at 7536.25. Near-term, we’re looking for a strong upside bias to possibly develop over 7626.25, and for a strong downside bias to develop on a sustained move under 7439.75.

September E-mini NASDAQ-100 Index futures settled higher on Monday, supported by strong gains in Facebook and Netflix, which climbed 4.2% and 3.2% respectively. The strength was also driven by a 0.9% gain in Amazon, a 0.7% rally in Alphabet and a 0.6% gain by Apple. Gains were likely limited by low volume tied to uncertainty over the Federal Reserve’s interest rate and monetary policy decisions on Wednesday. The Fed is not expected to cut rates at this meeting, but policymakers may open the door to potential rate cuts in July and September.

On Monday, September E-mini NASDAQ-100 Index futures finished at 7561.25.
