The stock market was able to absorb a fair amount of bad news last week as the Dow Transports showed the best gains for the week. The S&P's 50% resistance at 1114 was exceeded briefly last week and a move back above this level should make the bears nervous. A move above the June highs at 1130 is likely needed to start a short squeeze with the key 61.8% level at 1140. The McClellan Summation Index formed a bullish divergence at the June lows and is looking quite positive.
