Higher for the cash and dow futures along with the S&P's and nasdaq. Except for the cash down the entire complex made  new CONTRACT HIGHS AND CLOSES. The nasdaq has also settled higher nine sessions in a row and eleven out of its last twelve leading the way in an impressive pattern. Now the indices have no resistance overhead while strong looking support nearby for all three. The dow futures has strong looking resistance from 17000 down to around 16000 while S&P's nearest support goes from 198000 to around 195000. However, the nadaq's closest support starts under 3960. The cash dow has been in its fifth up year in a row, when history's average is four years, remains on many traders minds. BUY SIGNALS FOR THE NASDAQ. SELL SIGNALS FOR THE DOW ALONG WITH THE S&P'S (WHICH I FORGOT TO CHANGE).
