Tech gains helping S&P to join World index in pushing to multi-day highs

Minor gains in Tech and Staples today which is serving to drive the S&P with gains in TSN, HRL, KR, EL, CVS out of XLP, while seeing Technology gains from NVDA, QRVO, KLAC, LRCX all higher by 3%..  DJIA making 9th straight record closing high potentially today, but very stretched here, and NASDAQ along with EEM showing better outperformance-   On the downside-  ENERGY extending losses initially seen back last Thursday as WTI settles.. but both OIH and XOP lower by 1.50-2% on the day, while SOX snaps back to the tune of 1.4% after last Friday's loss-   Breadth about split today.. and volume equal in rising vs declining issues.   but equities seem to be stalling out despite Tech gains.. and difficult to see what can lead the market higher out of this range-  Staples and Energy the only sectors HIGHER and LOWER by greater than 0.50% respectively.. while Goldman's Short basket higher by more than 1%, so its important to note that there is some short covering ongoing today-  Metals like Steel, Iron ore showing strong gains, and Bitcoin making a big breakout back to new all-time highs.  Otherwise , most things fairly subdued today, and not much volatility in eitherTY, nor DXY which might provide much of a clue
