Market Interpretation:

Last week, the indices continued to rise.  Even after they hit new high ground, the markets were under accumulation.  This subtle, but important distinction, demonstrates that there is powerful demand for stocks.  It shows that institutions are not just buying at support levels, but have the appetite for stocks at and above important resistance levels.

The market remains robust, powered by themes of iPhone 5, Kindle Fire HD, premium retailers, medical, homebuilders, and technology.  The breadth of leading stocks speaks to a strong, durable rally.  Most of the leading stocks are extended, at this point.  New breakouts are not likely to be as powerful as stocks that broke out months ago.

Joel’s Take:

Current headlines don’t look promising: unrest in the Middle East, tax increases, high unemployment that is becoming structural, the election, and Europe.  Yet, the market is moving with power.  In modes such as this, the market becomes forward looking.  The Fed’s QE3 is a policy that is designed to create inflation.  The purpose of this inflation was originally to create demand for real estate.  However, now it is an artificial method of creating wealth through asset classes like real estate, commodities, and most especially, the stock market.  The other very important effect of QE3 is that, by inflating the currency, the national debt is reduced, in real dollars. The ability of this government policy to push the markets higher should not be underestimated.
