Daily Market Commentary: Consolidation

Friday's gains were offset by Monday's low volume decline. The damage was relatively limited, although markets remain primed for further weakness.

The S&P is well above declining resistance, turned support, although On-Balance-Volume again switched to a 'sell' trigger.


The Nasdaq is still protecting the large breakout gap.  Although it's struggling a little to reverse the downward trend for On-Balance-Volume.


While the Russell 2000 traded in a very narrow intraday range.  This is looking very bullish.


For Tuesday, watch for further consolidation.  Beware of a big sell off in the first hour, because this could instill fear in the market, and lead to a bigger push into the breakout gaps.
