The US stock market exploded higher today, as Small Caps surged over +5%, with the Russell 2000 moving back to within -1% of its 200 day MA. But, the small caps weren't the only strong movers, as the rest of the major indexes all had strong follow through days, and the Nasdaq 100 (shown above) has moved within -1% of its 2023 highs (set on the 19th July) and so is approaching the top of its Stage 3 range. And hence the question is, whether it will have the strength to breakout to new 52 week highs, and make a new Stage 2 continuation breakout attempt, or will it fail and fall back into the Stage 3 range.
