The Market Continues To Trend Higher As Confirmed By The Bullish Percents
The market is able to launch significant rallies. From a contrarian's point-of-view, the current level of bullishness in this survey favors higher stock prices.
Dow Theory Favors Higher Stock Prices
If bond prices move significantly lower then I think it is likely that the Semiconductors will point lower too, and this works against stock prices.
Excessive Bullishness Flushed Out
In January, the market ran up too high, so a lengthy period of correction or consolidation was needed before a healthy trend could resume. It looks like we had just about three months of correction which seems about right.
Short-Term Uptrend Is Doing Well
Breadth indicators continue to support the uptrend. New highs are starting to look healthy, and new lows are at harmless levels.
The Week In Charts: The Big Picture
Technology stock prices don't like higher oil and higher rates, and we can see that now in the charts. The Semiconductors look vulnerable, and that's important because the general market needs leadership from this group.
Too Early To Tell On Uptrend
My guess is that a short-term uptrend has started, but I am not ready to make the call quite yet with a couple of themajor indexes still below their 50-day average
