Daily Market Commentary: Higher Volume Accumulation

Bulls were able to keep the party going as yesterday's consolidation gave way to a day of buying. Volume climbed in confirmed accumulation for all key indices.

However, gains in the S&P didn't slow the relative swing form Large Caps to Small Caps (Russell 2000).


Or Tech Stocks


Although there is a fine balance between demand for Tech and Small Cap stocks - which in itself reflects good diversification in money flow to the markets.


Today's action reflects a continuation of the rally kicked off in October and confirmed in December. The Nasdaq 100 is already trading at all-time highs and it looks like the Nasdaq will soon be following suit.  On a weekly time frame, gains for Tech indices have the appearance of base breakouts and may suggest an overall lengthening of the bull market, perhaps to last through 2012.


There is little on offer for bears.  While the rally may encourage profit taking, there is little on offer to suggest going short is an option.
