Waiting for NASDAQ 5,000? Don’t hold your breath, say strategists

“The level I have for the NASDAQ is the 4,292 level,” says Busch. “That’s where we bumped up and hit there back in July 2000. And, I expect that to be the target that we might get to next year.” The NASDAQ behaves less like the S&P 500 and more like Japan’s benchmark Nikkei index, says Busch. “I look at the NASDAQ because it was so crazy back in the late ’90s and early 2000 somewhat more like the Nikkei than rather the Dow. As everyone knows, the Nikkei’s top was 37,000 and we’re still almost 50% below that.
