Monday’s strong close was a bit surprising after last Friday’s plunge. The Dow Transports led the market higher, closing up 2.9% versus just a 1.3% gain by the S&P 500. The RS line broke through resistance on April 14 and has acclerated to the upside over the past week. Since it has been a leader since March 2009, this should be a positive for the overall market. The upper trend line and major chart resistance from 2008 are in the 5300 area.
