To trade the Nasdaq 100, consider the PowerShares QQQ Trust ( QQQ) ($74.26). My quarterly value level is $68.95, with a semiannual risky level at $78.39. The 200-day SMA is 67.71, last crossed as 2013 began. Wednesday was a key reversal day.

Keep an eye on the PHLX Housing Sector Index ( HGX) (202.63) as a close this week below last week's low of 203.33 is a weekly key reversal. For the major equity averages to have weekly key reversals, they would have to close below last week's lows: 15,053.46 Dow Industrials, 1626.74 S&P 500, 3426.67 Nasdaq, 6324.48 on Dow Transports and 971.24 Russell 2000.
