Despite this recapture, there is still a lot of resistance at these levels. Going forward into Friday and early next week I will be looking for a followthrough move to the upside or downside, thereby confirming the levels as cleared or continued resistance. In the meantime, my outlook on the TSX 60 will remain neutral.

The TSX 60 recaptures the 20 moving average--just barely...
Today the TSX 60 index recaptured the daily 20 moving average. You'll recall from my analysis earlier this week that I was calling for a float up into the 780 gap fill area. Since then we've seen exactly that and closed today significantly higher at 783.11--just .60 points above the 20 moving average. Because the recapture is so slight, it's difficult to tell if it represents a true breakout or a minor pierce signalling a move lower.
