Daily Market Commentary: Consolidation

In a similar vein to yesterday's, markets traded in a relatively narrow range, to the extent many traded inside yesterday's range. Volume dropped as is typical with a consolidation.

The semiconductor index was able to push its advance a little while technicals made good ground.

The Nasdaq eased back a little, but is above 2,988 support.

While the S&P managed to make a small gain.

The Nasdaq 100 bucked the trend by trading some big volume at resistance; it remains an aggressive short at resistance.

Will bears make an appearance tomorrow? The presence of the Nasdaq 100 and Dow Jones at channel resistance suggests their side is favoured.
