Though most traders and investors are watching for a move above the June highs in the S&P 500 at 1130 to confirm higher prices, the broader NYSE Composite has already surpassed its June highs. There is next resistance in the 7330 area. The McClellan Oscillator, a short-term A/D indicator, formed a strong bullish divergence at the July lows. It still looks positive, but a break of the uptrend would be the first sign of weakness.
