 Weekly Commentary  

The NASDAQ's bearish head and shoulders top we wrote about last week (ellipse on the chart) barely completed as the index briefly touched the neckline on Wednesday. Thursday's and Friday's gains were in response to the ECB President's promise to 'do whatever it takes' to save the Euro with the expectation that this will be followed by a European version of our own QE. We know the effect of that was to bolster stock prices as financial institutions used their access to virtually free money to drive equities higher, so market participants expect this announcement puts a floor under the downturn. Friday's trading showed strength on higher volume but profit taking set in as the index touched resistance at the downward trend line.
