There is always a reason why there is divergence between the S&P 500 and Nasdaq. A trend following tool will be able to help you see that. Yesterday, S&P 500 and the Dow Jones fell while the Nasdaq Composite rose. Well, I guess it surprised many people, but not me or those of us here that use a trend following tool to help us.
