Stocks Close Above Resistance

All the major averages traded above their respective two month downward trendlines and their 50 DMA lines on Thursday. However, it is a bit disconcerting to see volume recede as the market moves higher. This is the exact opposite of what one would like to see when the major averages rally. It is also important to note that the major averages are rallying up to an area where they encountered resistance several times in recent weeks and they are still below their longer term 200 DMA lines. That said, we can not argue with the tape and the bulls deserve the bullish benefit of the doubt until this “breakout” is negated. Trade accordingly.
