The March NASDAQ 100 closed higher on Wednesday as it extends the rally off October's low. The low-range close sets the stage for a steady to lower opening when Thursday's night session begins trading. Stochastics and the RSI are overbought but remain neutral to bullish signaling that sideways to higher prices are possible near-term. If March extends last-year's rally, upside targets will be hard to project. Closes below the 20-day moving average crossing at 8939.33 would temper the near-term friendly outlook. First resistance is today's high crossing at 9254.00. Second resistance is unknown. First support is the 20-day moving average crossing at 8939.33. Second support is the 50-day moving average crossing at 8620.85.
