|Includes: ARRS, SPDR Dow Jones Industrial Average ETF (DIA), MCRL, QQQ, SPY

Stocks traded today's entire session in positive territory and finished off the highs in the middle of the day's trading range. We must respect the trend and increase the resistance levels on the DJIA (NYSEARCA:DIA), S&P 500 (NYSEARCA:SPY), and Nasdaq Composite (QQQQ) to 11,117, 1,182, and 2,454, respectively. One thing to point out the Volatility Index (VIX) open lower was .02 off the low for the day and rose throughout the day to 19.07 near the high of 19.16. We have been pointing recently how complacency has been building in the market. Today's action may indicate a short term bottom in the VIX. If so, then volatility may pick up and a correction to the stock market direction uptrend could occur. As we have been saying it is best limit or not put cash to work in new positions, take some profits, and cut losses.
