The Dow Industrials and S&P 500 indexes have already cleared overhead resistance barriers. The Nasdaq market may be next. Chart 1 shows the Nasdaq Composite Index trying to close above its 200-day moving average. That would be a positive development for it and the rest of the market. Chart 2 shows the PowerShares QQQ Trust (QQQ) challenging its early December intra-day peak at 57.45. The Nasdaq market has underperformed the rest of market since October as reflected in their falling relative strength ratios (below charts). The market usually does better when the Nasdaq is in a leadership role.
