Daily Market Commentary: Consolidation

Markets were able to retain the bulk of yesterday's gain with only minor losses by the close of business. The only change was a modest improvement in technicals.


But Small Caps struggled a little more with the index trading below both 20-day and 50-day MAs.  Shorts are likely working Small Caps harder than Tech or Large Caps.


Meanwhile, Nasdaq breadth is working a swing low, led by the Percentage of Nasdaq Stocks above the 50-day MA.  But it will take a time to complete.


For tomorrow, shorts will likely focus on the Russell 2000, while bulls will play the Nasdaq.
