FTSE FOR FRIDAY (FTSE:UKX) A bunch of folk requested we add the Nasdaq to our daily index analysis. This seemingly simple request was to prove a bit awkward in filling, due to disparity amongst various feeds. Finally though, we're happy at what we're looking at but it has thrown up a little problem.

Unlike the DOW & SP500, the NASDAQ has not been outperforming itself when we step back and review its Big Picture potentials. Quite the opposite in fact as it's still got a little bit to go before we find ourselves scratching our heads. Currently trading around 7031 points, it certainly looks capable of some stumbles around the 7409 point. Secondary, if bettered (ever), comes along at 8570 points - above which we're currently clueless! This index needs fall below 6275 points, just to indicate the immediate rate of acceleration has eased.

As for Fridays FTSE, this week has been truly confusing with the market proving exceedingly difficult to read. The problem remains, there are more arguments wanting to pressure the index downward than upward as the index currently requires above 7255 points, just to stop us talking about drops into the 6800's.

Near term, there's little doubt in our calculation which suggests anything now below 7120 points should generate weakness toward an initial useless 7100 points. Secondary, if broken, calculates at 7050 points. The tightest possible stop looks like 7190 points.

Alternately, if some miracle can now drive the index above 7190 points, we're looking for growth to an initial 7230 points with secondary, if bettered, at 7250 points. Stop can be at 7120, the above paragraphs trigger level!

Have a good weekend.

UPDATE. We often give an initial and a secondary price. If the initial is exceeded, we still expect it to fall back but the next time the initial is bettered, the price should continue to the secondary. The converse it true with price drops.
