Market Interpretation:

As indices have trended into highs, resistance levels have less significance.  The levels that I have cited above are psychological levels, which are either round numbers, or percentages of extension above recent levels.  Having broken into new high ground with broad, powerful leadership, the trend seems likely to persist.

Friday’s option expiration, which can bring heightened volatility saw continued strength.  This market environment is showing powerful breadth and strength not seen since the 1990’s.

Joel’s Take:

April brought a violent shakeout to stocks.  We saw levels of Distribution that typically lead to corrections.  Yet, the indices surged off of their 50 Day MA’s into new high ground.  Tech stocks have shown improved strength since that time, with AAPL bouncing off of its lows.  Tech leadership has emerged from several stocks including GOOG, PCLN, MSFT, CSCO, YHOO, and ARMH, among others.

In a market where many stocks are working, the ones with the best fundamentals tend to be the very best.
