Weekly Market Commentary: Little Change on Week

Markets had a bit of a roller coaster week on continued shenanigans in Europe, although the net effect was to see little change on the week.

The Russell 2000 got close to 760 resistance as technicals improved. The index continues to trade inside the potential 'bear flag'.


The Dow was able to push a little more given resistance is a couple hundred points away - namely declining resistance from the early 2011 swing highs..


The S&P also offers room to the upside. But...


S&P market breadth exhibited a 'bull trap', which suggests lower prices!


Despite the 'bull trap' in the NYSE Summation Index the rising price trend remains dominant for the S&P and others. Look for another week of gains until declining resistance created by April and July swing highs becomes more of an issue.
