Editors Note:

The Russell sprinted higher with a 1.26% gain to make a clear break from the 100-day resistance. The small cap sector was very positive with very few declining stocks. The potential for a shutdown resolution and extended tariff deadline for China, greatly improved investor sentiment. I am sure there was a lot of short covering involved as well since the headlines for the last three days have been negative. All of our positions moved in the right direction today.
