Weekend Update Into April 5th – S&P 500 Smashes 4,000 and NASDAQ Pumps On News of Biden’s New Green Deal.

Spartan cheers of victory rang out in the Wall St. pits on Thursday, as the S&P smashed 4,000 to new all time highs. With the NASDAQ adding and impressive 2% gain to the index (recovering losses from earlier in the week), the overall market is moving quite bullish into Q2; inline with seasonality data according to Trendspider’s Seasonality Widget. An announcement from the Biden administration of a $2 trillion dollar infrastructure spending package is the main catalyst for Thursday’s surge. However, investors will be listening closely to the details of the package on Wednesday when a White House press conference is scheduled.

The $SPY ended Thursday’s session at $401.21; with a breakout of the upper level of an ascending triangle pattern on the weekly chart. On the sessions chart, price has closed above the upper trendline of an ascending wedge that many hope to become new support for continuation. The $QQQ closed the week at $325.32; testing the upper level of an ascending triangle formation on the sessions chart. The weekly chart finds price well above the highest volume nodes at this price range; combining both for a suggestion biased toward a continuation on Monday’s open.
