Bulls Rebound but Outlook Remains Cloudy

The market showed strength throughout Monday’s action following better-than-expected economic news concerning housing and manufacturing. The gains weren’t enough to cover the prior session selloff but eased concerns of a continued pullback.

The Russell 2000 tested a morning high of 1,427 while closing at 1,421 (+3.1%). Key resistance at 1,425 was breached but held with a move above this level signaling additional momentum towards 1,450.

The Dow tested a midday high of 26,156 before closing at 25,595 (+2.3%). Key resistance at 25,500 was breached and held with continued closes above this level keeping a retest towards 26,000 in focus.

The S&P 500 settled on its session high of 3,053 (+1.5%). Near-term resistance at 3,050 was recovered with continued closes above this level signaling upside towards the 3,100 area.

The Nasdaq closed at 9,874 (+1.2%) after trading to a late session high of 9,877. Fresh resistance at 9,850 was cleared and held with continued closes above this level signaling a retest towards 9,950-10,000.
