Nasdaq index back up testing 100 hour MA


Do sellers come back in?

The NASDAQ index moved to the lowest level since February 5th today, bottoming at 13804.258. That was short of the swing hi from January 25 at 13728.98 and the 38.2% retracement of the move up from the January 29 low at 13720.51.

The rebound has moved up and retest its 100 hour moving average currently at 13949.553.  Do the sellers lean on the moving average retest, or does the market break above and then look to retest the 50 hour MA just above at 13985.71?

Taking a look at the S&P index, it was able to find dip buyers against its 100 hour moving average (currently at 3906.84) and rebound above its 50 hour moving average. As a result, from a technical perspective, it did not tilt more to the downside intraday.
