Daily Market Commentary: Bulls Keep Things Ticking Over

No great surprises or shocks from Friday, a late surge in the S&P gave the end result to bulls, but losses elsewhere were very minor. Another day which keeps the bullish picture intact: very little on offer for bears.

In the case of the S&P the strong finish on the day came with higher volume accumulation. There was a brief recovery in relative strength (vs Russell 2000), although it looks like a temporary reprieve.


The Russell 2000 experienced a bearish engulfing pattern at the 50-day MA, although the index looks to be shaping a bullish handle following the reaction bounce off the May low.  Prepare for an upside breakout, but intraday penetrations of 1,130 still possible (buying opportunity?).


The Nasdaq is nicely positioned at a resistance level.  Friday's loss was on higher volume distribution, although the day looked more bullish than bearish. There may be some come back, perhaps as far as the 20-day MA which is about to 'Golden Cross' with the 50-day MA, but this should be viewed as healthy and a good buying opportunity.


Nasdaq breadth isn't suggesting a major swing low, but a low of substance to last the summer is looking likely.


Tomorrow is a bank holiday in Ireland so there won't be an update, but I don't expect things to change anytime soon.
