Technical support was tested on the NAZ in April since it broke its 1-year uptrend in late March. The vital level to watch is for 4000 to hold on this index – as indicated by my dashed red line on the chart. The index can be considered a technology-heavy one, and seasonal strength cycles tend to end for that sector in late January or February.
We’ve been peeling some of our exposure to technology out for a month now, and don’t expect to be as aggressively positioned in it for a while yet. Investors who are long an index stock for the NAZ, or are a little tech heavy, will want to consider taking some exposure off of the table—especially if the 4000 level is taken out.
