Main Trend: <02/26 Tue>

Major 1100 has been intact for 2 days, target 1154 is valid within 2.5 weeks. If 1100 is broken on daily close basis, then another story. Stay buy on buy side. Even if 1100 is broken then up trend will start over again from 107x to 1155. As of today, Dow Jones/Nasdaq are back to prior year 1998 relationship, but sp is lagging behind for about 150~200 points. So, as we said before, we don't think we would see last year's SP low again in year 2002 even year 2003! This weekend's close could indicate next week as a big down week or big up week (1140 testing, and 115x the week after). By looking at sp alone, it looks like 115x should be hit within 2.5 weeks; but Dow is too high. Step by step.
