The NAS100 has a positive sentiment heading into the cash open. The H4 chart on the left shows the index positioned between the upper blue and red bands in its bullish area. However, the hourly chart on the right suggests a potential higher trough (HT?). An hourly close above the green horizontal would increase the likelihood of this scenario and lay the platform for the next higher peak.
Corporate earnings will play their part here in terms of short-term sentiment. Earnings releases ahead include GS, NFLX, JNJ, LMT etc.
