Daily Market Commentary: Strong Finish

After an opening sell off, markets were able to stage a strong recovery to finish the day near the highs. Volume was below yesterday's, but the end day gain was of greater importance.

The S&P was able to mount a successful defense of its 200-day MA, but technicals aren't yet net bullish. The 50-day MA is the overhead target. Relative strength remained in Small Caps favour

The Russell 2000 finished at channel resistance, but not before putting some distance from its 200-day MA. As with the S&P, the 50-day MA is overhead resistance.

The Nasdaq managed to overcome the rebound off the 200-day MA, and it was able to finish a shade above its 200-day MA. The next upside target is its 50-day MA.

Today's finish sets up for a move to 50-day MAs.  Ideally, it would have been good to have seen some higher volume accumulation, but there is probably enough to see some upside follow through tomorrow.
