Will the Nasdaq 100 match what people are planning to buy for Xmas?

According to www.Infographiclist.com, 38% of people have already started their holiday shopping:

If 75% are planning to buy electronics, and with 49% planning to spending the same as they did in 2010, we'll see whether the NQ continues to outpace the YM, ES & TF in terms of overall strength until Xmas.

At the moment, all 4 are being held back by their 50 sma (red) on the 4-hour chart, but are still trading above their 200 sma (pink)...price may bounce around in between those moving averages as long as there are more unsettling rumours coming out of Europe (perhaps until we get closer to Black Friday). The TF is leading today's weakness along with a small pullback in EUR/USD.
