Minus any near term attempt to snapback to or toward the line just violated, the overall picture here suggests that we're likely to see continued positive money flows entering the market short term which should help to propel prices even higher from current levels.
Aside from Wednesday's downdraft, the markets continued firm this past week with all of the major market indices closing higher week over week with gains of around 1%. Taking a quick review of this week's breadth chart array and we see that the NYSE Composite, NYSE Common Only and NYSE Specialty CEF advance/decline lines all extended their gains into new all time high territory, while the NYSE Preferred, NYSE Bond CEF and NYSE REIT advance/decline lines made enough head way to break above their respective declining tops lines seen on the charts. Add to this that the FTSE and DAX advance/decline lines both settled all new all time highs on Friday, along with the Aussie advance/decline line having a strong week, and it's difficult to come up with anything that would be deemed "analytical" to comment on. The Precious Metals advance/decline line also joined in the fun this past week, while the XAU advance/decline line finished up by breaking above its longer term declining tops line seen on the chart. Meanwhile, the BETS moved to its highest level since February 1st of this year coming in with a +60 reading on Friday, and a quick review of this week's cumulative charts array shows that Canada's TSX index has literally exploded higher to around a 5% gain over the last 2 weeks. Given all this good news, however, the markets are now at a point where they are "allowed" to see an obligatory one or two day snapback of to or toward the various resistance lines that have been broken in these same A/D measurements, but bigger picture wise, the path of least resistance remains firmly higher at this time until proven to the contrary. Have a great week of trading!
