Historical look at 200 day cross over 50 day
In yesterday's buzz, Todd noted the 200 / 50 day average crossover in the QQQQ. The pattern is bearish but the extent of historical declines depend on the commodity, equity, or index of reference. It's only the third crossover (after a sustained period below the 50 day) for the Q's and the fourth for the Nasdaq futes.
For this type of pattern, it's best to actually look at past charts to see what could happen. Below are occurrences for the Nasdaq futures. The 200 day is in red, 50 day in blue, and I've highlighted the crossover date.
