Technical Analysis


Following the news of a new infrastructure bill from the US government NASDAQ started its rise and continues it uninterrupted save a small correction.

We can see that NASDAQ has broken through the major resistance level of 13,000 and is currently aims to reach 13,100. If it manages to do that, we’ll probably see a strong uptrend.


The chart shows that Boeing is following an uptrend, even though it is interspersed with corrections. If it manages to break through the 260 resistance level, it might have a new support level.
