The correction in the stock market this week has been mild so far with the S&P 500 holding short-term support at 1204. There is stronger support and the 20-day exponential moving average (EMA) in the 1185-1195 area, but the 38.2% support is much lower at 1155. The Nasdaq 100 has been leading the market higher and the 20-day EMA is 40 points below Thursday’s close at 2133. The Nasdaq 100 has stronger support at 2060-2095, which also corresponds to the April 2010 highs.
