QQQ, NDX move back to new highs helping Tech to outperform

Into mid-day, we've seen a continued ramp higher in US equities with S&P getting close to, but not quite to resistance just over 2270-  NASDAQ 100 making the largest move today with the breakout back to new high territory finally joining the other indices and helping Tech to play Catchup after the last couple months of underperformance ,  Breadth is a mild 3/2 positive, but the Energy, Tech and Discretionary outperformance +1% + gains account for about 40% of the SPX, and only Industrials and Real Estate down..  Within Industrials-  BA, JEC, NSC, ETN, ARNC, PNR all down over 1% today.. while CAT, MAS and several airlines head higher-  AAL, LUV, ALK-  Dollar has turned fractionally positive in the last couple hours while Treasuries have lost their earlier bid and now down, with yields up to 2.49 ahead of tomorrow- Crude has turned back up over 53, and should be very positive for Energy issues... Elsewhere- Most of Europe closed near the highs of the day, with SXXP at 11 mth highs up 1.06% and Italy's equity mkt up 2.5% today-  Small caps Underperforming today, with IWM just fractionally positive and DJ TRANSPORTS actually DOWN On the day, but NSC, JBHT, R, CSX being lower are a definite weight.. but the Airlines making good strides, led by JBLU higher by 6%.  Into this afternoon- look to sell into 2272-4 if reached ..and sets up for an attractive area to sell into based on Demark on daily charts.  but yet most weeklies still suggest higher into end of year.. so any backing and filing should prove temporary-  Support on weakness lies near 2243-5, with initial pivot at 2254, but until tested.. trend still looks to push higher into late today/tomorrow-  Let me know if i can answer any questions.
