The S&P 500 closed at 4,185 (+0.4%) after reaching a record peak of 4,191 ahead of the final bell. Fresh and lower resistance at 4,175-4,200 was breached and held. A pop above the latter would indicate upside towards 4,225-4,250.
The Russell 2000 settled at 2,262 with the morning high tapping 2,273 (+0.3%). Near-term and lower resistance at 2,275-2,300 was challenged but held. A move above the latter would suggest additional strength towards 2,325-2,350 with the all-time top from mid-March at 2,360. Below is a chart of the IWM.
The Nasdaq ended at 14,052 (+0.1%) with the late day peak hitting 14,062. Prior and lower resistance from early February at 14,050-14,150 was cleared and held. A close above the latter and the record high at 14,175 would likely lead to a breakout towards 14,250-14,400.
