Yesterday's market action was positive.

The Nasdaq Composite remained almost flat, gaining just 0.02% in above average volume (Point A). After powering higher on Thursday it was good to see the Nasdaq bullishly refusing to give back its gains.

The Nasdaq also finished the session for the second day running above the 3134 level, a high it reached at the end if March of last year This now gives US tech index another new 52 week high (Point B).

The S&P 600 continues to pull out all the stops. It finished the session above the 472 level putting an end to its recent correction and giving the smallcaps a new 52 week high (Point C).

Leading stocks continue to perform well, on a day when the Nasdaq didn't make much ground, 67% of leaders were powering higher compared to those losing ground.

This week we have seen the Nasdaq (Point D) and S&P 600 (Point E) both completing there cup with handle patterns and breaking out into new high ground.
Ideally from this point onwards I would like to see them remain above their breakout points.
