Keys To This Week: The US Stock Market
Monday May 23rd 2016: Key #2 of 10
Asset Flows: PowerShares QQQ ETF.
NEAR TERM BEARISH, MAJOR DECISION POINT.
Chart 2 below shows that the total net assets invested in QQQ declined below their the 21-day moving average on April 21st, indicating a trend of monthly contraction that is characteristic of US broad market declines.
However, the chart also shows that these assets are starting to stabilize from $35.3 to $32.8 billion, a level that has coincided with significant bottoms in the NASDAQ 100 (NDX) on February 10th and in August 2015 and October 2014. A sustained rise above the 21-day moving average, from this key level, would suggest that another similarly-important bottom is in place.
