It looks like a clear breakout to the upside and if there is follow through we could be ending the consolidation zone and moving into a new trend. Today's move was also happened to take us above the 50 DMA which is a bullish sign. SPY also move above its 50 DMA we will see what happens during this week as there is nervousness about the Fed's decision, as anticipated, next month to increase its key interest rate by 0.25%.

NDX found support today

As NDX found support near the month's (May) lows today. If the market bounce back from here we could be back in the channel and stay there for a while, maybe for the rest of the summer. Yesterday, with Fed's minutes coming out, the market did not move significantly as everyone was expecting. So analysts believe that the Fed has already started tightening the rates in the shadows 'using shadow' rates since 2014, therefore its not in a hurry to do anything now.
