Closing Technical Market Analysis for Mon June 20th 2011
The stock market indices started the week on a positive note, but backed off in the afternoon in a consolidation formation and took back some of the gains.
Net on the day, the Dow was up 76.02 at 12,080.38, not for off the high for the day. The S&P 500 was up 6.86 at 1278.36, just 2 points off its high, and the Nasdaq 100 was up 11.40 at 2204.36, about 6 points off its high.

The majority of stocks on TheTechTrader.com board were mixed, but there were several major important gainers today. Harbin Electric, Inc.

On the downside, Apple Inc. (AAPL) lost nearly 5.00, down 4.94 to 315.32, and traded as low as 310.50, a new multi-month low today. Goldman Sachs (GS) was down 2.09 to 135.14, and Coffee Holding Co.Inc. (JVA) 2.49 to 13.10 on big profit-taking. OmniVision Technologies Inc. (OVTI) lost 92 cents to 28.75, Tesla Motors, Inc.

Stepping back and reviewing the hourly chart patterns, the indices were up slightly at the opening and backed off. They tried to test resistance again and backed off again, and then finally broke through late in the morning to session highs during lunch hour. Again they backed off, came on again, and then rolled over in the afternoon, but managed to bounce in the last hour to preserve some of the gains for the day.
It was a decent start to the week, but we have key resistance at 1280 S&P 500 and 2210 on the NDX to get through before we can say that we may have turned the corner.
