Russell 2000 Manages Small Gain But Whipsaw Risk Remains High

The NASDAQ recovered some of its losses as it made it bounced off its 20-day MA.  The rally is a mix of bullish technicals for On-Balance-Volume, and a bearish one for the MACD. However, while it’s easy to be pessimistic we have yet to see concerted selling in the index.  The index continues to outperform the Russell 2000.

The S&P finished with a small, indecisive doji above all lead moving averages. Technicals are bullish, although trading volume over the last couple of days has ranked as confirmed distribution.  The trend remains positive, so until this changes (with an undercut of an earlier swing low), this can be considered bullish. 

Indices remain unchanged on prior action; the Russell 2000 still has to catch up, while the S&P and NASDAQ maintain their rallies.
