The stock market indices had a very excellent consolidation day, ending with gains on the day. The day started out with a pop to the upside, then a quick pullback, but the S&P 500 went to new highs, and the Nasdaq 100 failed to do so. When that happened, they pulled back midday. They tried to rally in the afternoon, unable to take out the highs. They pulled back at the end of the day, but then a quick, ten-minute snapback ensued that put them in the plus column.
