NASDAQ Meets Resistance at 50 day Average
The major indexes had mixed successes this week with the NASDAQ gaining 1.3% while the S&P 500 and DJI each slipped 0.2%. The S&P 500 would have lost more were it not for the strength of Apple, which is the largest component of the S&P 500 by market cap, which gained 13.6% for the week. The NASDAQ Composite still threatens a bearish Head and Shoulders Top and two distribution days on Wednesday and Thursday increased the prospects of the pattern being completed, which would occur of the index closes below the neckline. The major indexes all opened in negative territory on Friday but a strong employment report caused a reversal. The NASDAQ briefly tested resistance at the 50 day average but closed lower for a 1.7% gain on the day. Volume was just insufficient to create an accumulation day to partially offset the two previous distribution days. Our trend indicators remain down for the three major indexes.
