    Keep in mind, as posted in the trading room, these are 60-minute charts so best to wait for at least a 60-minute candlestick close above or below this recent trading before taking action (buying/selling/shorting/covering) in order to minimize the chances of positioning on a whipsaw/false breakout.

    This looks like another one of those ‘whatever’ rallies, with no news to back it up.

    The guy from Pivot Point Trading, whose Youtube videos I watch from time to time, was of the opinion that Nasdaq will close the gap to the 5000 level, before starting its move much lower. This could be the start of that push upwards.

    Would take quite a reversal on the 60min to pull this back under. Poised to stay above.

      Yes, looks like the breakout is valid, quite possibly a trend day in progress. Certainly near-term bullish if this move sticks but I’ll have to assess the charts just before or after the close as this market has been acting quite unusual lately so anything can happen today & over the next few sessions.

    I think the Qs are going to march higher until the Apr 28 reaction high of 108.33.
