 Weekly Commentary  

The NASDAQ Composite has formed a double top. This may just be a sign of consolidation but watch for a head and shoulders top (HST) forming in the next few days. if it does, that would be bearish, particularly if the HST is confirmed when the price drops through the neck line. Meanwhile, all our market trend remain upward although two distribution days for the NASDAQ, a drop in daily volume and just 4 breakouts for the week, suggest that caution in chasing new alerts is advisable.
