IWM-QQQ-DIA-SPY Chart
IWM-QQQ-DIA-SPY Chart

As seen on the above chart, two of the major indices including the S&P 500 SPDR® S&P 500 (NYSE:SPY) and the Dow Jones via SPDR® Dow Jones Industrial Average ETF Trust (NYSE:DIA) cleared prior resistance from their 50-Day moving averages (DMA).

On the other hand, the Russell 2000 via iShares Russell 2000 ETF (NYSE:IWM) has resistance near $230 and the NASDAQ 100 Invesco QQQ Trust (NASDAQ:QQQ) has overhead resistance from its 50-DMA at $369.39.

With that said, the recent market action has been enforced by strong bank earnings and consumer demand.

Improving consumer demand can also be reflected in the transportation sector ETF—iShares Transportation Average ETF (NYSE:IYT)—which made a second gap up since clearing the 50-DMA at $251.72.

Therefore, if the market is going to continue higher, keep an eye on IYT for upwards momentum and for SPY and DIA to hold over their 50-DMAs.

When it comes to trading on Monday, often gap days are met with a digestion day as buyers take profits and money rotates into new buyers. This rotation is normal and if the market trends higher will show underlying strength. Nonetheless, the main takeaway for trading on Monday is to watch for IYT, SPY, and DIA to hold their current price areas. If they do this will help the tech-heavy NASDAQ 100 (QQQ) and the Small-cap Russell 2000 (IWM) look to clear their pivotal resistance areas.

$230 resistance for IWM and $369.39 resistance for QQQ.

  • S&P 500 (SPY) 442 new support.
  • Russell 2000 (IWM) Needs to stay over 225.
