The rally continues




















The market broke key resistance today and it looks like it will continue to go up despite all the reasons why it should take a break here. Also, there is a possible inverted head and shoulders that targets 1535 the wave today might just be a bullish W3. I did not label it yet as I want to see what Monday looks like but I covered the SPXU portion and buying it back next time I see a bearish sign. I predicted in December the market would likely hit 1600 if there is no recession and by the way it's going, we'll see 1600 by Spring. What's frustrating is the lack of corrections and again this is just clear proof the market goes up when it wants to go up regardless of what fundamental or technical reason why it shouldn't. The one thing that has gotten the market right is the Trend Average as it has only been breached for 1 day but has not changed trend since Jan 1st.

Have a Great Weekend!
