Daily Market Commentary: Powerful Rally

Positive economic data helped fuel a powerful rally, led by a breakout in the Russell 2000. The Russell 2000 continued to outperform the Nasdaq and S&P as Small Caps cleared resistance defined by April, June and August swing highs. This break sets the groundwork for advances in other indices.

The Dow rallied off rising support in a typical trendline bounce.  It also managed a resistance break on higher volume accumulation.

The Nasdaq 100 went a step further and managed a new all-time high, also on higher volume accumulation. Technicals are in good shape with the MACD trigger 'sell' close to reversing.  A pullback to 2,800 could offer opportunity for buyers.

Even the struggling the semiconductor index was able to regain the 20-day MA. Watch too for a new MACD trigger 'buy'.

Looks like the tone has been set after 2 weeks of quiet trading.  Bulls take an early start on proceedings.
