S&P "Bull Trap" Negated As Sellers Lose Momentum
It's not exactly textbook, but whenever bears are able to punish markets they are quickly undone, often by a single day of strong buying.
Peak "Black Candlesticks" Again Offer Cause For Concern
With junior traders likely to be still holding the reigns after the long weekend it was worrisome to see 'black' candlesticks pop into the charts of the Nasdaq and S&P.

Friday offered itself as a solid day for bulls, the only thing it lacked was volume.
"Black Candlesticks" Are A Concern For The S&P And Nasdaq
A bright start for bulls on the back of positive NVDA earnings wasn't enough to generate a day of meaningful gains. However, it did help stall the losses of the last couple of days.
S&P "Bull Trap"?
I thought there was sufficient evidence to argue against a "bull trap" in the S&P, but it would appear the market wasn't interested in such thoughts.
S&P 500 Breakout
The S&P delivered with a solid breakout, albeit on modest volume.

Things are picking up for bulls. The Nasdaq added a solid white candlestick to make the current move look more like the breakout that started (and stalled a little) last week.

It wasn't a great day for indices, particularly as volume ranked as confirmed distribution for the S&P and Nasdaq, with daily volume traded higher than any prior buying day.
Narrow Action For Markets Does Everthing But Breakout
There really wasn't much wiggle room for markets without delivering breakouts for the Nasdaq and S&P, but yet, markers managed to find them. The Nasdaq delivered a narrow day at resistance, but still no breakout.
Nasdaq And S&P Launch Another Attack At Resistance As Russell 2000 Struggles.
For the last couple of months, when buyers have had control of the Nasdaq, they have done so on bullish accumulation, but when bears have had the edge they haven't been able to control the story.
"Death Cross" In Russell 2000 As Sellers Strike Markets
The Nasdaq was interesting in that selling didn't register as distribution, although it had already experienced 'sell' triggers in the MACD and On-Balance-Volume, with the ADX joining the 'sell' triggers.
For Today, Read Yesterday - No Change In State Of Play
