NASDAQ Up Volume, Telling Signs
Up volume on the NASDAQ for most of the 1st quarter 2021 was spectacular. The Fed was pumping away at $120 billion a month as far as the eye could see, enticing speculators into an orgy of rampant excess. 

Trying to Break Out of the Bear´s Grip

Monday was the highest up volume day on the NASDAQ since then. Interestingly,  that up volume came after a real smash in many speculative names, a true bear market for over 50% of NASDAQ stocks. This was profit-taking by short-sellers, not the start of a new bull market.  It was short  – risk-off,  not long risk on. As well, it served to relieve an over-extended, over-sold decline.  That´s what bear markets do to set up another leg down. If we don´t get real follow-through upside soon, then this relief rally will prove a prelude to further pain.  Ultimately, the question facing traders: was the Monday up volume surge a prelude to a new extended bull run, or a prelude to a new bear decline? We side with the latter.
