The daily NAS100 has slipped from its bullish area, between the upper blue and red bands, to neutral, between the blue bands (green rectangle). On a relative basis, this suggests weakness. The hourly chart shows that the trend-following EMAs and the momentum-based stochastic have turned negative (black ellipses). If the EMAs develop angle and separation to the downside and the stochastic makes its way to the 20- levels, a bearish momentum will be building.
