IWM-QQQ Daily Charts
IWM-QQQ Daily Charts

Tuesday, Janet Yellen stated that “It may be that interest rates will have to rise somewhat to make sure that our economy doesn’t overheat.”

The market was already trending lower on the day after its recent teetering around new high territory. Clearly, Yellen did not help.

However, the main index to break down Tuesday was the tech heavy NASDAQ 100 QQQ).

The QQQs had been range bound between highs at $342.42 and $333.97 for most of April. Tuesday it gapped lower and continued towards its 50-day moving average at $324.91.

This will be the next support area to watch for the major index to hold.

Let us check how the other indices fared through Tuesday.

The key takeaway is that other indices were still at or over their support areas.

Additionally, Monday, we talked about the importance of the transportation sector IYT) holding near the highs as an indicator for underlying market strength.

Now with two of the major indices lingering near their 50-DMA, we can test our theory if the IYT continues to help the market hold, or if it begins to selloff.

We would be way more negative had IYT closed under yesterday’s low after making new all-time highs. But it held and therefore, remains the leader.

Furthermore, junk bonds (JNK) were holding their 50-DMA, which is where we look for risk appetite.

Therefore, we could see a turnaround today, or, if IYT and JNK gap lower, a much uglier continuation downward.
