 Weekly Commentary  

The NASDAQ gapped up past its previous 14 year high on Friday following a week that saw the ending of QE, an unexpected rise in Q3 GDP, consumer confidence at its highest levels since 2007 and the adoption by the central bank of Japan of quantitative easing measures, similar to those adopted here. The European Union may also adopt similar measures. The market loved it!

A week ago , I was lamenting the mediocre volume that supported the week's gains, but that concern has vanished now following four days of at or above average volume. Surely we will see some consolidation now after the rapid gains of the last three weeks.
