|NASDAQ Retreats and Forms Cup and
Wednesday's market enthusiasm following the success of Remdesivir trials in shortening recovery times from Covid-19, was curtailed Thursday as the weekly jobs report showed a further 3.8 million workers had filed for unemployment assistance. The result was the NASDAQ gave up 0.3% and set up a handle with resistance at 8957.
Our market signal remains positive for purely technical reasons although it is difficult to believe the underlying economy justifies the strength of the recent rally. Although there are baby steps being taken to reopen the economy in many states, airlines, hotels, and shopping malls are likely to remain depressed due to the fear of contagion. As long as unemployment remains high, consumption, which traditionally drives 70% of our GDP, will remain low.
The surge in the early part of the week produced 14 breakouts but gains could not be sustained following Thursday and Friday's declines.
manufacturer Resmed Inc. surged on Friday following a 17%
increase in earnings. This surge could follow through on Monday
for a short term profit.
