Still oversold. That's right, despite the rise we've seen in the past week, both the




are not yet overbought. Neither market will reach an overbought reading until the end of this week. As usual, we may see some digestion, but on the whole the oscillator says we should continue to see an upward tilt in the market for at least the next week.

And even the

Nasdaq Unweighted Average

managed to straighten itself out and get back on the upside track during last week's rally. We certainly can't complain about that anymore.

As for Nasdaq 5000, if we can get there, and will we get there, I say the same thing I said about Dow 10,000: Who cares? It's just a number and we would do best not to focus on it; leave that to the folks at

As for technology stocks that still have the kind of charts I like,




Sun Microsystems

(SUNW) - Get Report

are still on my list. I'd also point out that

Red Hat


flew past my 60 target to 55, but managed to stay down there for only a few minutes; a rally back near resistance just under 90 now seems likely.
