Unfortunately, the heavier volume decline in the Dow registered a distribution day and a MACD trigger 'sell'. The MACD 'sell' signal was enough to create a fresh bearish divergence in the indicator - which in turn, could be the cue to see a break of channel support on Monday. The NASDAQ 100 fell just shy of a breakout, but higher volume at resistance is a sign of (bearish) churning, so there is no guarantee for a breakout early next week. Working in support of the NASDAQ 100 and NASDAQ were the continued gains in the semiconductor index. In the short term the semiconductor index is looking a little rich, but there was enough leg work done by the bulls to shifts its intermediate picture (3 weeks - 3 month outlook) in favor of long positions. This in turn, should translate to gains for the NASDAQ 100 and NASDAQ.

The Russell 2000 posted a minor loss and still maintains its sharply rising (and narrow banded) channel, started late January. The break of the October-February bearish divergence in its MACD remains its key move for the week. The S&P held support of 1,452 and did so without the higher volume churning witnessed in the Dow.

Tech market internals [$NASI, $NAA50 and $BPCOMPQ] were little changed and run in support of January gains in the indices. Because of this I hold to my bullish 30-day outlook for the Ticker Sense Blogger Sentiment Poll.
