The bulls remain in control of the U.S. stock market, but none of the five major averages set all-time intraday highs on Friday. When trading the exchange-traded funds that represent these averages, remember that technology remains the clear leader.
The SPDR Dow Jones Industrial Average ETF (DIA) - Get SPDR Dow Jones Industrial Average ETF Trust Report, known as Diamonds, SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (SPY) - Get SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust Report, known as Spiders, and the iShares Transportation Average ETF (IYT) - Get iShares Transportation Average ETF Report set their all-time intraday highs on March 1. The iShares Russell 2000 ETF (IWM) - Get iShares Russell 2000 ETF Report set its all-time intraday high on April 26. The PowerShares QQQ Trust ETF (QQQ) - Get Invesco QQQ Trust Report , set an all-time intraday high of $137.54 on May 5.
New highs appear in-the-cards for Diamonds, Spiders and QQQ's, but transports and small caps may lag. All ended last week with positive weekly charts, with QQQ's maintaining overbought momentum.
