NASDAQ Composite Trading Outlook (3-5 days): Bullish

The NASDAQ, along with the S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrial Average all jumped to new June highs, within striking distance of peaks made in April.

Volume and breadth are expanding which is a step in the right direction for the Bulls (near-term).

The NASDAQ is shown here as it tends to be the one index to concentrate on for those interested in leading sectors and stock indices.

The NASDAQ peaked a full month ahead of the broader stock market last Fall, and currently shows no divergences. It’s thought that a move into April highs should occur before any reversal and likely gets above this area into July/August.

Thus, while we might be extended intra-day and could benefit from a minor pullback post Federal Reserve, any pullback is thought to be a buying opportunity for a rally into June 24/25.

S&P 500 Trading Outlook (3-5 Days): Bullish to 2930-2945

Yesterday’s rally above 2910 was worth following for a move which likely gets up a bit higher to test April highs before any real top. SPY volume doubled the prior day’s totals and breadth came in at 3.5/1 positive, all Pluses.
