TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
The Dow’s relentless rise off the December low has allowed the index to take out resistance levels along the way with relative ease, most recently leaving the 200-day in its wake. This puts it on path towards 26k or better. It could turn down without extending that high given how stretched it is, but momentum still favors higher prices at the moment. A quick breather would do it some good first. Shorts won’t hold appeal again until we see a strong break in the upward trajectory.
