    Last weekend, in my Market Forecast, we discussed,

    "For the week, the market will start with a neutral stance. On the downside, SPX has support between 1325 and 1320. On the upside, pushing above 1345 could bring SPX to test 1360 again."

    The market dropped down to test 1310 on Monday, but, bounced right back up on Tuesday. In Tuesday's evening article, I saw the potential for the market to pop higher. On Wednesday, the market started to climb. Thursday morning, stocks took a quick drop, as no news came out of the Europe summit. However, with about 90 minutes left in trading, buyers start to trickle in. In the last 30 minutes of Thursday's trading, SPX jumped about 12 points to close near 1330. Thursday night, encouraging news finally came out of the Europe Summit, and, global markets responded positively. The US market vaulted +2.5% on Friday to end the 2nd quarter!

    We wrapped up a fabulous month of June, with a plethora of big winners.
