Stock Market Outlook: Global Indexes Are On Fire!

Brandon Van Zee

The S&P 500 Index fell 0.15% today, but not before hitting another all-time intraday high.

All major U.S. stock market indices touched new 52-week highs and have bullish intermediate postures according to the Market Forecast indicator.

The Russell 2000 Index is the only major index without a “3 Green Arrows” signal.

All major stock market indices have bullish postures on the 10-40 weekly crossover system.

Preferred stocks have been quietly trending higher while interest rates have been falling.

Health Care was the leading stock market sector today and Real Estate was the lagging sector today; only Energy remains with a bearish intermediate posture.
