Stock Market Outlook Gets A Boost From Russell 2000 Golden Cross

Brandon Van Zee

All four major U.S. stock market indices continue to have bullish intermediate postures according to the Market Forecast technical indicator.

The S&P 500 Index (INDEXSP: .INX) snapped its brief losing streak by finishing 0.12% higher, near the highs of the session.

The NASDAQ Composite (INDEXNASDAQ: .IXIC) and Russell 2000 (INDEXRUSSELL: RUT) also finished higher, leaving only the Dow Jones Industrial Average as a small loser for the day.

The S&P 500 and NASDAQ Composite both have “3 Green Arrows” signals using daily candles.

The Russell 2000 officially ended last week with a golden cross using the 10 week and 40 week moving averages.

The U.S. Dollar has been on an impressive bounce for the last two week but now finds itself at a horizontal resistance area.

The 10 year U.S. Treasury yield rose to 2.05% but continues to have a bearish intermediate posture; bonds largely remain in uptrends
