    Last weekend, in my Market Forecast, I discussed,

    "For the new week, the broader market may take a slow start. However, Nasdaq may get a push from the software sector. If SPX manages to break above 1370, it may kick in a new gear. On the other hand, Nasdaq has a lot of room to go higher."

    We indeed did get a slow start. On Monday, the market dipped lower at the open, but, managed to rally back up before the close. On Tuesday, the Dow closed above 13,000 and SPX closed above 1370. On Wednesday, Nasdaq went up to test 3000 in the morning, but, the market quickly reversed directions and closed lower for the day. On Thursday and Friday, the market struggled to find a direction and traded in a narrow range. By the close on Friday, SPX was not able to stay above 1370.

    Even though the market basically didn't go anywhere, we had a really nice week, scoring big wins with 100% of the closed trades in the GR$$N, including a +207% gain on VVUS and an +81% intraday profit on GS.

    For the week, the Dow was down 5.38 points; SPX added +3.89 points; Nasdaq gained +12.44 points. Gold and oil went lower. Gold lost about $80 for the week. At the time of this writing, Asian markets were down. Here's how the US market closed on Friday:

    SPX

    On Friday, SPX fell 4.46 points to close at 1369.63. The daily MAs were little changed. MACD slipped.

    Nasdaq

    Nasdaq fell 12.78 points to close at 2976.19. The 10-day MA flattened and the MACD was lower.

    The market tried hard to break higher, but, couldn't. SPX struggled a whole week against 1370 and still closed just under. For the new week...
