The indexes held on Wednesday and the short term up-trend looks robust. The 30 day average has turned up for the major indexes, a very positive sign. Since the first day of this up-trend on June 18, the QQQ has advanced only +1.3%, and the QLD has advanced +2.1%. Thus the indexes have not climbed much. However, it looks like these index ETF’s are starting to accelerate. I am adding to my position in QLD. A lot of stocks are breaking out of bases. Check out this monthly chart of VMI, which has broken to an all-time high from a multi-year base. They have an earnings call scheduled for next week.
