Editors Note:

The short squeeze ran its course on Friday and the Dow retraced -157 points. It was a tale of two markets with the Dow and S&P lower and the Nasdaq and Russell 2000 higher. This was a throw away day after the +440 short squeeze gain on Friday. You knew there would be profit taking. However, the Nasdaq set another new high and that kept the Dow from selling off even worse. Tuesday will be the real market test. If we move higher is should set the stage for new highs on the Dow and S&P.
