Post Market Analysis, Friday February 12

|Includes: SPDR Dow Jones Industrial Average ETF (DIA), GLD, IWM, QQQ, SPY, UUP, XLF

 The markets gapped down this morning and spent much of the day recovering. Our support/resistance lines drawn in at 107.2 and 108 on SPY worked very nicely today. Ultimately, we have an inside trading day on SPY and a relatively weak breakout of the bull flag formation on the daily chart. The VIX did drop today which adds some validity to the rally. The TRIN was bearish while the TRIN/Q read bullish. The TICK and TICK/Q both corroborated today's action. Note the Russell 2000 (NYSEARCA:IWM) showed relative strength today.
