Good Morning Stock Fans!


"Comparing the NASDAQ April 7, 2000 to April 27, 2000 Deja Vu!"

Stock Fans, on April 7, 2000 the NASDAQ had come off the April 4, 2000 lows of 3,652.00 and exploded to close at its high of the day at 4,446.00 up 178 points on the lowest volume of the year on the NASDAQ 100 index. On April 10, 2000. the next trading as April 7 was a Friday the NASDAQ went to as high as 4,504.00 up 58 points from its April 7, 2000 close. That would be the top as the NASDAQ would then drop 1,283 points or down or 28% off 4,504.00 in less the 4 days 4446.00 a low volume explostion much like yesterdays was resulted in a 1283 point sell off to the bottom when it was over.

Then The NASDAQ did indeed bounce off April 17 low and 200 day low of 3,221.00 going as high as 3, 851.00 on April 19. The NASDAQ had then moved 630 off its low on April 17 just 2 days earlier. Then the NASDAQ into last trading day of that week closed on April 20 at 3,643.00. The NASDAQ then opened up at its low of the day on April 24 on MSFT earnings out April 20 and on its WSJ article huerting its cause. The NASDAQ would go as low as 3,345.00 then bounce off that and trade higher for 1 day up over 200 in one day the 3rd biggest move ever. Then The NASDAQ yesterday got as high as 3,774.00 its high of the day.

What the data shows me is this. The NASDAQ went as high as 3,851.00 on April 19 before it then dropped on MSFT worries to 3,345.00 that drop was 506 points. The bounce back up is so far 3,774.00 yesterdays (April 27 ) close.

Looking back we see that the day I am comparing the NASDAQ to be so much like almost a carbon copy of yesterday was April 7. That day the NASDAQ went to as high as 4,446.00 as I stated earlier. The NASDAQ then on April 10 the next trading day went to as high as 4,475.00. That would be as high as it would go and has been since. (4,475.00 - 4,446.00 =29 points) We then look at April 24 low of 3,345.00 against the low on April 14 of 3,265. That difffernce is ( 3,345.00 -3,265.00= 80. If we add 80 - 29 togther to 2 ranges we are using the total then is 109.00. Then NASDAQ then should today use that range to 3,800.00 (UP today 50.00-58.00 or so at its highs today then go down 109 more then it did on April 24 when it found 3,345.00. So then 3,345.00 - 109 = 3,236.00 extremly close to the current NASDAQ 30 day low and the current 200 day low on the NASDAQ of 3,221.00 that area hit will give us the tested bottom we need.

Today -NASDAQ preidction not up more then 50.00 -58.00 - NASDAQ goes no higher then 3,832.00. It then should set it self up according to April 10 for a drop to

3,545.00 ( 4,475.00- 4,188,00 = 8% So then today 3,832.00 - 8% = 3525.00 ..I will look for that and then more come Monday!

It traded about 6.10 on average. Then on 4/14 it hit it all time high of $144.3750. It then sold off the next 5 sessions on increasing volume back down to where and took out its low on 4/4/2000 of $111.00 and it found a low of $107.00.
