After a rough 2022, the Nasdaq 100 roared back in 2023, climbing from around 11,000 points to near its 2021 peak of 16,764 by December. Technical indicators like the Alligator and 200-day SMA confirmed this strong upward trend.

As of December 13th, 2023, the index hovered near 16,354 points, close to both the 2021 high and a key resistance level. A test of this level seems likely. Success could send the Nasdaq even higher, possibly setting a new all-time record. However, if it fails to break through, a dip to the nearest support at 15,932 points or the channel’s lower line could occur.
