Tech and Small Caps had best of action

I started the day with a short in the Nasdaq 100, and ended the day stopped out. Large Caps didn't quite reach the same highs, but will likely follow the leadership of the Nasdaq and Small Caps.

The Russell 2000 will likely lead the indices out. It's very close to negating the 'bull trap'. Tomorrow could be the day.

The S&P may have edged a breakout, although it would be easy enough to redraw the consolidation to keep the index under wraps. Technicals are still net bearish, despite the net bullish directional index.

The Nasdaq is probably a 50:50 if it can push on to re-challenge 5,000, but volume climbed to register accumulation.

The Nasdaq 100 still has a wedge breakdown to consider, and hasn't quite enjoyed the same gain as the Nasdaq, but it did enough to hit my stop.

Tomorrow is an opportunity to confirm today's gains and to pressure shorts looking for a break of support. Small Caps look best positioned to reward bulls.

You've now read my opinion, next read Douglas' and Jani's.
