buyers and sellersMorpheus Trading: Although stocks got off to a strong start last week, last Friday’s chop was the third consecutive day of tight-ranged price action for most of the major indices. Total volume levels eased on both exchanges, which is bullish (and to be expected)

With the NASDAQ Composite breaking out to a new 52-week high last week, our model for timing the market was forced back into “buy” mode.

Although the index has not yet rallied back to a new high, the S&P 500 has staged quite a comeback as well. As of Friday’s close, the S&P 500 SPDR ($SPY) is sitting only 1.2% below its 52-week high:


After a strong, six-month advance off the lows of 2012, iShares Spain ETF ($EWP) has been consolidating in a tight range just below its monthly downtrend line. Now, a potential long-term, bullish trend reversal is underway.

On the monthly chart of $EWP below, notice the international ETF is now trading above its downtrend line (dashed blue line) and is poised to breakout from a tight, eight month base of consolidation:
