S&P on verge of bull cross of 200-day MA

A solid start to the week, albeit on light volume.  Last week saw the bullish cross of the 200-day MA in the Russell 2000.  This week started with the S&P fast approaching its 200-day MA and could be testing it tomorrow. 

The S&P is also on the verge of a fresh cross in On-Balance-Volume, although the relative performance of the index to its peers took a step in the other direction - but this shouldn't distract what is positive, bullish action. 

The Russell 2000 maintained its bullish pressure as the 200-day MA break through held for another day. Technicals are net bullish and despite the light volume today there was a continued uptick in On-Balance-Volume.

The Nasdaq returned with an uptick in On-Balance-Volume for a new 'buy' trigger.  While technicals are again net positive it still has some distance to go before it reaches its 200-day MA.

There was nothing particularlry dramatic about today and what it offered was typical of holiday trading action.  It will probably be September before we get to see any meaningful movement in the market, but if 200-day MAs can be breached and held by then, traders will have the benefit of a number of support levels to work with.
