Top News

It’s the global rally everyone loves to hate. Stop watching what only the US equity market does. Economies in Asia and Europe are supposed to be slowing, then why are equities around the world rallying? Because markets are looking to the future by 6 to 9 months and they are telling us the slowdown is passing.

If you want to be a complete trader or investors then you must, must, must pay attention to all financial markets, bonds, currencies, commodities, international, and domestic. Only then do you get the complete picture.

We live in an interconnected world. The U.S. is not an island entire to itself.


Equities around the globe are in rally mode, with the biggest surprise coming out of Asia. China’s Shanghai composite broke out overnight with the index rising above a critical level of resistance at 2,655.


Hong Kong

Hong Kong didn’t break out –yet. It closed right on technical resistance at 28,160. Look for the break out in Hong Kong tonight, especially if the US remains strong.

The Nikkei also closed right below crucial resistance at 20,951.


S&P 500 (SPY)

The S&P 500 is pointing to a higher opening and appears to be ready to challenge resistance at 2,730 to 2,735. A jump above 2,735 sets up the rally to 2,800.
