Mid-Week Stock Market Outlook: It’s Getting Hot In Here!

Brandon Van Zee

The S&P 500 (NYSEARCA: SPY) rose by 0.47% today and retains its strongly bullish intermediate posture. The broad stock market index is now trading at its highest levels since early December.

All four major U.S. stock market indices continue to have strongly bullish Market Forecast intermediate postures, bullish Market Sentiment postures, and “3 Green Arrows” signals (see video below to learn more).

All four charts continue to trade with a bearish 10-40 week moving average crossover, but only the Russell 2000 remains with current price below its 40 week exponential moving average so bullish crossovers are becoming a realistic possibility in the near future.

Gold continues to be in a bullish uptrend and the stabilization of oil prices have allowed Master Limited Partnerships to procure a bullish intermediate posture.
