Daily Market Commentary: Breakout

After yesterday's suggested  breakdown in the Russell 2000, markets headed in the other direction and pushed higher. The S&P went as far as to break from the bearish flag and accelerate higher.

The Nasdaq finished the day inside its 'bear flag'. The 'bear flag' remains the dominant aspect in the near term, although today's finish was enough to see it regain the 20-day MA.

The Russell 2000 recovered enough to hold on to its 'bear flag' after yesterday's suggestion of a breakdown.

For Friday, bulls should focus on an expansion of the gain in the S&P.  If the market opens weak, look for a gap down in the Russell 2000.
