Some stocks are getting extended near term due to their recovery success. Others are looking ready to move up from solid tests. Overall, recovery stocks are working and are showing good patterns.

The market is in a nice rotation, all of the leaders showed solid Bullish action ahead of earnings.

The Technicals

S&P 500 was up 7 of 10 sessions, putting it in the extended mode near term. It is in its channel as it approaches the upper marks.

The NAS Comp is not too far from new highs, but it is also extended a bit near term, as it has also put in a 1,000+ point move during a strong 10 sessions running. It gapped over the 78% Fibo retracemen mark Thursday and found buyers off of a 2-day test after marking that mark.

What to expect this week
