Chartology: PowerShares QQQs Breaks Above Downtrend Line

Stock ChartsSince bottoming in early June, the PowerShares QQQ Trust (QQQ) has bounced higher within a wide, yet clearly defined, rising channel. Although many would see this as bullish, the QQQs was trading choppy and had yet to conquer the 3 month downtrend resistance line… that is, until today.

After spiking higher today and closing above this key resistance, the ball is now in the bulls court to hold its gains and produce some follow through. The next level up is the upper channel line (67.50ish).
