Editors Note:

After a week of leading the market higher, the Nasdaq has stalled at resistance. The techs were leading the market rally but they have lost traction and without their leadership, the rest of the market is fading. The Russell tried to help with a minor 4-point gain but overall the A/D line was almost perfectly flat. Volume was light at 5.9 billion shares and the weakest since July 23rd. There is no excitement and investors are waiting for that next headline to provide direction.
