Daily Market Commentary: Low Volume Consolidation

Light trading over the Veteran's day holiday did little to change the broader picture.

The S&P remained at its 200-day MA, generating what looks like a whipsaw signal for on-balance-volume. The S&P remains the last of the key indices to hold this moving average, it will be a difficult task for it to hold in such light.

The Nasdaq posted a small loss, but it looks ready to make another leg lower.

While the Russell 2000 will be looking for support around 760. It currently trades around a minor support level of 795.

Today's trading was clouded somewhat by the holiday.  Tomorrow will give a clearer picture as to what the week holds. Breadth does not suggest a significant swing low is in play, but a relief rally is well within the realms of possibility.
