Nasdaq 100




S&P 500








Market Interpretation:

Broad accumulation has pushed the market to record highs.  The NASDAQ indices have taken a leadership role, led by AAPL, rebounding off of lows, GOOG, and MSFT.          While leadership continues to come from many different industries, the NASDAQ Comp. has lagged throughout the year, mostly due to AAPL’s downtrend.  It is interesting to note, that while the NASDAQ has led for the last two weeks, volume has come in lighter in the last two trading sessions, as the index broke out in earnest.

The S&P 500 and the DJIA, which have led the market to date, finally broke to new highs on Friday’s jobs report.  This was accompanied by increased volume on the NYSE.  Also of note last week, global central banks continued to enforce an increasingly accomodative policy, which might continue to help the markets to move higher.

Joel’s Take:

Last week, the indices overcame a high level of Distribution to move into new high ground.  This was accompanied by some breakouts, and many moves to new highs among leading stocks.  While this market has been tricky because the broad trend underwent an amount of Distribution that most often leads to a market top, the facts have clearly changed.  Significant exposure should only be taken in this market, after initial positions show gains.
