The NASDAQ extends the new highs as earnings from AMZN, SBUX, GOOG, and MSFT beat expectations. The disappointment came from the rest of the market indexes not following the upside move. That is a red flag short term and something we will have to watch for now. The posts last week did well and continue to look promising short term. Approach the week with caution, but take what it gives.
