Markets Breakout

In a day of turmoil the unlikely struck in many guises; from the Trump election, to the election pre-maket sell off, to the huge accumulation rally delivering new breakouts - it was 6-months of activity in a single day!

Kicking off things is the S&P breakout. Today's volume was massive. With today's gain it only has to negotiate the tight range from July/August before new all-tie highs are in play. Today's gain brought fresh 'buys' to Stochastics, +DI/-DI, and MACD.

The Nasdaq came back to close above its 50-day MA. It will soon find itself challenging the 'bull trap' from the upside breakout of the prior rising wedge. A move above 5,340 opens up the possibility of new highs.

The Russell 2000 was the big winner. A huge 3% gain (were a 3% loss was a distinct possibility) delivered a close above 50-day MA and new 'buy' signals in the MACD and +DI/-DI.

What markets would welcome now is a breather. Key will be hanging around at today's highs and preparing for the next move higher. Tomorrow's market is another day, but today was exhausting.
