NASDAQ 100 LEADS MARKET LOWER... The Nasdaq 100 QQQs were the worst percentage losers on Friday and reflected continuing weakness in the largest technology stocks. The daily chart shows the QQQ ending the week on a down note. The only saving grace was the relatively light volume. With the SOX leading the way down today, it looks like the QQQ will probably test its December low and its 200-day average just above 34. The final chart shows the hourly bars for the past week. Of particular notice was the last hour's volume bar. In the last hour of trading on Friday, the QQQ fell to a three-day low on the heaviest volume for the week. That shows some fairly heavy selling near the close on Friday.
