"June 30 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei average is set for a sharp drop on Wednesday, after a tumble on Wall Street, with the benchmark index seen breaking below a key support level, which market players say will ignite more falls.
Nikkei futures traded in Chicago 2NKc1 closed at 9,375, down 1.8 percent from the Osaka close JNIc1. Charts have turned bleaker, with the Nikkei's MACD set for a bearish cross and its slow stochastic, which gives near-term signals on market trends, edging down in oversold territory.
The Nikkei ended the previous day at 9,570.67, and its next targets stand just below 9,400, a six-month low hit this month, and then 9,250 and 9,000, one market analyst said. For the quarter ending Wednesday, the Nikkei is poised for its worst quarter since Lehman Brothers failed in 2008.
