Daily Market Commentary: Rallies to Resistance

Courtesy of Declan Fallon

For a fourth day in a row markets posted gains. This took lead indices to resistance, although the Dow bucked the trend by smashing through.

I haven’t focused on the Dow as it hasn’t done anything unique, but today the Dow broke declining resistance connecting reaction highs for April. Volume climbed to register an accumulation day, supporting the validity of the break.

The S&P wasn’t able to achieve the same success, finishing the day at declining resistance. Volume was also lighter, although it was able to close above its 50-day MA. It might be a tall ask to see a fifth day of gains, but with the Dow comfortably ahead it’s not outside expectation (although unlikely).

The Nasdaq was interesting. Like the S&P it finished at resistance, but unlike the S&P and the Dow, technicals turned net bullish. So while price action underperformed that of the Dow, technically it’s better positioned for further gains. Volume climbed to register an accumulation day.

It’s supported by declining resistance breakouts in supporting breadth indicators, like the Percentage of Nasdaq Stocks above the 50-day MA.

Finally, the Russell 2000 is in a similar position to the Nasdaq; finishing at resistance with technicals net bullish.

For tomorrow, despite bullish technicals for the Russell 2000 and Nasdaq, look for modest losses as bulls prepare to drive a break of resistance and follow the lead of the Dow. The S&P is perhaps in the weakest position and the index most likely to show downside. The chief area lacking has been volume, this will have to increase if a break of declining resistance is to stick, irrespective of the index.
