📈 S&P500/Nasdaq 100: Divergences

The S&P500 and the Nasdaq100 have both broken out to new all-time highs on high volumes. While the S&P 500 has a small correction potential up to around 5,200 points and only then is the path upwards towards 5,766 points clear, the Nasdaq100 has a direct path towards 20,963 points. Last week's 50:50 scenario has resolved itself in a positive sense. The Nasdaq100 has continued to build up high relative strength against the S&P500 and the DAX.So much for the positives. The fact that this upswing stands on rather "feet of clay" is shown by the continuing sharp decline in market breadth. This rise is therefore being driven primarily by the major U.S. technology stocks, while many others are rather weak. Not a good basis for a solid rise. Due to this divergence, strict adherence to the risk thresholds is called for. Such a divergence can last longer and it seems that many institutional investors are too negative about the market and are therefore underinvested. In addition, there is a fundamentally positive cyclicality due to the U.S. election year.So my primary scenario is positive, but I am ready to go into risk management mode at any time. The "CNN Fear and Greed Index" is still in the low range, which shows that despite the all-time high, few trust this rise. That is why I remain invested exclusively in relatively strong stocks that are not prone to major fluctuations and may expand here.Hashtag#TradingHashtag#SP500Hashtag#Nasdaq100Hashtag#ChartanalysisHashtag#FearAndGreedIndexHashtag#Wealthmanagement
