Long term Nasdaq prediction chart
Here is the updated long term prediction chart for the Nasdaq.
The previous chart , made in November 2000 (
), has been very useful.
Now we can try to look a little further ahead.
As predicted the Nasdaq has fallen back into the long term uptrend
channel since the year 1973.
We are now very close to the middle of the trendchannel, near 1750.
Does this mean the decline is over?

1999 and 2000, the market will move into the other extreme and fall below the
channel somewhere during this decade...

The market is now trying to work its way up towards the downtrend line "D" in
the chart. Only if this line is penetrated to the upside, we can be more
confident that the low is behind us.
If the market does not succeed to break above this trendline before the end of
the year 2002, we will be left with a giant head and shoulders pattern (see S1
- H - S2 ), usually a very bad omen.
In that case we have to watch the all important major support level at 1400. If
that level is taken out , we are likely to fall below 1000 by the year 2004.
Needless to say that this would probably be accompanied by severe economic
