The Dow Jones Industrial Average and NASDAQ Composite INDEXNASDAQ .IXIC hit all-time highs today.

The Russell 2000 Index INDEXRUSSELL: RUT has come to life recently; while it hasn’t hit an all-time high, it is hitting multi-month highs and now has a “golden cross” on the 10-40 crossover method using weekly candles.

Stock Market Video – November 6, 2019

The U.S. Dollar rose for the second straight session after having an oversold cluster signal; that led to some weakness in gold.

Interest rates rose again (10 Year Treasury yield ended at 1.86%), which led to weakness in real estate and bonds.

Defensive sectors like Staples, Utilities and Real Estate currently have bearish intermediate postures using daily candles according to the Market Forecast technical indicator.

Cyclical sectors like Industrials and Financials gained strength in the most recent Sector Selector rankings and both sectors hit multi-month highs today.

All primary global stock markets have strongly bullish postures; some of the developed European countries pulled back slightly today but Japan remains a leader.

Within the secondary global stock markets, all countries have at least a weakly bullish posture; Taiwan is particularly strong.
