Nasdaq futures 1-hour chart

The cash market has closed, so here is a look at how the Nasdaq futures market reacted to the earnings releases. The trendline on the chart had been broken once before and then after a dip below, there was another break of the level. The last hourly candle represents a 1.76% move higher.

Not only was there a pattern break the 55 Exponential Moving Average has been broken once again. The indicators are also looking bullish once again. The Relative Strength Index is back in the positive overbought area. The MACD histogram is also in the green with extending bars and the signal lines are back above the zero level.

Elliott Wave analysts might be wary of the 76.4% retracement zone which the price is currently at right now on the chart. Overall the trend is still very much an uptrend on the higher timeframes. These earnings could be the confirmation the market needed for the bull trend to resume.
