The Great NASDAQ Head and Shoulders Top

Well, will you look at this...

NASDAQ weekly

Is this possible is not the question. It is.

A head-and-shoulders top is a pattern associated with "distribution." And could trading on NASDAQ this past decade be better summarized?

Clincher, though, is most recent action...
  • A volume spike accompanying the downside break of the head-and-shoulders neckline.
  • The reaction back up to the neckline.
All textbook. And going by this same book, the minimal objective of NASDAQ's head-and-shoulders top targets the vicinity of levels last seen in 1987. The only thing I cannot tell you is what will become of the wireless internet revolution over the interim.

So, there it is, the great NASDAQ head-and-shoulders top ... staring everyone right in the face ... bringing new meaning to the adage, it's not the face you f^@%, but the f^@% you face.
