Market review – Tue, Mar 26th ,2013: The major indexes Dow Jones, S&P 500 and NASDAQ saw a strong surge at the open, and recouped the yesterday’s losses, right away. They spent the rest of the day in a sideways move and consolidation mode. There were reactions and rallies. But, they were orderly and constructive. The indexes held on to the early gains, and ended the day with a bullish close. The Dow Jones and S&P 500 posted over +0.75% gains, while the NASDAQ posted just over 0.5% gains for the day.

Volume: The trading volume dipped in both in the NYSE and NASDAQ stock exchanges, and came in lower than yesterday’s level. The volume decrease was little disappointing, as we ideally like to see the volume go up during the price advance.

Growth stocks: The leading growth stocks from our watch list had a good day, today as the heavy volume gainers led the day. Only a handful of stocks made it to the decliners list. Our Top 250 – Growth stock daily heat map was also blanketed with greener shade, as well.

Recap: The indexes recouped the yesterday losses and made it as a wash. The Dow Jones and S&P 500 closed slightly below the 52 week high. The NASDAQ is just -0.34% off from its high. The only thing was the trading volume tracked down lower, today. So, the indexes continue to muddle in the narrow channel. So, the rally. So, just stay tight and watch out for new or secondary buying points, as the leading growth stocks continue the price consolidation.
