    The equal-weight S&P500 is outperforming the equal-weight Nasdaq-100 by 3.7% today, most since at least 2005 (my equal-weight data set start). Closest 2nd is 10/14/08 when the $SPXEW beat $NDXE by 3.1% but both indexes were red. With both green, on 5/8/09 $SPXEW > $NDXE by 2.77%.

  • From markminervini:

    Yesterday, the Dow outperformed the NASDAQ 100 by more than 5%. The market continues to be headline driven and increasingly volatile. A whipsaw market is the most dangerous and recent price action in stocks has been demonstrating this. In the short term, I’m cautious here.
