Weekly Market Commentary: Powerful Gaps Through Resistance

The weekly charts showed some interesting changes, particularly in the Nasdaq and Nasdaq 100, both of which gapped through major resistance. The Nasdaq is on course to challenge the next level of resistance at 2,010.


Better news came from the Nasdaq 100 which surpassed 2006 reaction lows and is on the way to 2008 reaction lows c1,702.


The Russell 2000 also pierced resistance of 2004 reaction lows and may go on to test former (bearish) head-and-shoulder support turned resistance.


Of breadth indicators only the Bullish Percents closed the week at new highs and prior bull market reversals usually don't kick in until the 70s - maybe there is another couple of weeks of gains to come?


So - it's looking good again for bulls and the aforementioned resistance levels which are now support should be good places for GTC buy orders or stop orders on breaks.
