Market review – Mon, Mar 25th ,2013: The major indexes Dow Jones, S&P 500 and NASDAQ surged at the open and added decent gains. The S&P 500 and NASDAQ even made a new 52 week high. But, the early rally ran into trouble quickly, and the indexes start to recede. The early sell-off got nothing, but accelerated as the trading session progressed, and the indexes logged hefty losses by early afternoon. The indexes tried to rebound in the afternoon, and recovered some losses, but not enough. The Dow Jones underperformed, and posted over -0.4% losses for the day.

Volume: The trading volume slightly picked up pace in the NYSE stock exchange, and came in even in the NASDAQ. The heavy volume trading resulted in a distribution day for the Dow Jones and S&P 500. The NASDAQ barely missed one.

Growth stocks: The leading growth from our watch list had a washout day, as the heavy volume gainers and decliners lists ran evenly. Though, the stocks that went up in price dominated our Top 250 – Growth stock daily heat map in the early going, the decliners gained the upper hand in the afternoon.

Recap: The indexes continued the last week trading pattern, today as well. The Dow Jones and S&P 500 logged a distribution day. But, overall the distribution days count still at contained levels only. The S&P 500 still closed over 1,550 price levels. All three indexes still trading above the short-term price levels. So, the rally continues to clog, and not getting anywhere. But, they key thing is that, it’s not broken, yet. So, just hang tight as we steer through this consolidation mode.
