The Markets

Stocks ended the week on a positive note as the S&P 500 Index takes another swing at resistance around the declining 200-day moving average and horizontal resistance at 4280.  The benchmark gained 1.73%, officially becoming overbought with the Relative Strength Index back above 70 for the first time since November of last year.  While many may view this as indication of a market that has has achieved its maximum potential, it should actually be perceived as indication of a bull market trend, one that is no longer showing characteristics of a bear-market decline.  Since the start of the year, both RSI and MACD have held predominantly below their middle lines, but they are well beyond these mid-points now as characteristics of a bullish trend materialize.  The 50-day moving average at 3952 continues to be looked upon as logical support to the intermediate-term trend that we still expect to rise into the end of the year.  But before we get to that end-point, a retracement/pullback remains desired and healthy.
