NASDAQ LEADS MARKET HIGHER...

 | 

In my view, the most significant improvement has taken place in the technology-dominated Nasdaq market. The Nasdaq Composite Index broke through its 200-day average on Tuesday and has broken its 2005 down trendline. Its relative strength line has turned up relative to the S&P 500 . That's usually a positive sign for both. Nasdaq leadership is essential in any market upturn. That's what we're getting right now. One of the missing ingredients in recent market bounces has been higher volume . Yesterday's market upturn, however, saw all the major averages exceed their normal daily volume. That's a sign that institutions are starting to buy back into the market with more enthusiasm. The Nasdaq now appears headed toward its February/March peaks near 2100 .
