Nasdaq100 ready to buy the dip? $QQQ $SPY #trading

While the US economy is finally seeing 'cracks' in its jobs picture, US Treasury yields continue to react downwards as traders forecast the weakening US economy will see lower interest rates. This downtrend in yields should act as support for valuations, particularly in technology names. On the earnings front in tech, Q1 earnings in 3 weeks should be decisive, but really the news flow continues to be encouraging.
