The S&P 500 is well positioned to add to its rally as it managed a new closing high. The MACD recovered from its 'sell' trigger. The only negative is the overall lightening of the volume despite the accumulation days.

The Russell 2000 is closer to the center of its channel. It holds a small edge over the Nasdaq (relative strength).
