|QQQQ - Mid-Term Trend|
|On Friday QQQQ has dropped below the Lower Bollinger Band level (42.86) reaching a symmetric triangle support line around 42.86. Then during the last trading hour, it has rallied gaining more than 2.5% and forming a Dragonfly Doji candlestick pattern. This pattern may signify the trend pause or reversal depending on where the Doji occurs. The Dragonfly Doji candlestick pattern is likely to mark a reversal when it accrues at a support/resistance level or at the lower/upper Bollinger band. A Bullish Dragonfly Doji has moderate reliability and it is considered as more reliable reversal signal, if the next trading day is characterized by one of the following: a white candlestick, a large gap up or a higher close.|
