  • DJIA leads as money rotates form tech’s to its blue chips
  • Tech leaders topping, the rotation allows the move to continue; some leaders will soon drop out.

DJIA: Thursday the DIA finished solidly higher, and extended Friday. DJIA is back at the  Top of the channel formed off the March and April lows, and looks like it wants to drive further North.

S&P 50: SPY like DIA, moved up to the Top of its uptrend channel formed off its 8 month base. Last week gainers have
S&P 500 filling the downside gap and rebounded last week, looking to test the all time highs in here.

NAS Comp:  The NAS is trending higher, but needs volume now.

RUTX: The RUTX tested its 50-Day MA on the week and moved back up. Thursday it gap up, sold off, then rebounded. The on Friday added some more, now the RUTX looks Bullish in here.
