Bulls Shine Again on Tuesday

A second day for bulls to shine despite modest end-of-day gains.


Dr. Declan Fallon

Some indices did better than others. The Russell 2000 (NYSEARCA:IWM) was the key performer. It finished with a MACD trigger ‘buy’ and looks ready to outperform the Nasdaq 100. ¬†This is an important development for bulls looking for more from other indices. A move to challenge – then break – its 200-day MA, would convert August-November action into a healthy basing action.

The Nasdaq (NYSEARCA:QQQ) registered higher volume accumulation as a brief sojourn below the 20-day MA was reversed. It’s nicely set up for a push to new swing highs.

The S&P (NYSEARCA:SPY) lost the most ground intraday, but managed to close positive by the close of business. It did clock a relative loss against the Russell 2000. The MACD hasn’t yet triggered a ‘buy, but is close to doing so.

The Semiconductor Index finished with a bullish engulfing pattern and is continuing to build a solid base. Long term prospects look good, especially as weak copper prices will eventually bring its reward.
