    Another day, another record high in the US stock market.

    As the chart below shows, we could be seeing a repeat of the mid-1990’s pattern, best illustrated in a monthly log chart.

    That run was briefly interrupted by Fed Chair Alan Greenspan observing that investors seemed to caught up in “irrational exuberance”.

    Perhaps new Fed Chair Powell will comment on his own views when he takes over from Janet Yellen shortly.........

    While all news is good news for the stock market, USD and bonds could see little to get excited about in the employment data, changing little on the day.

    EURUSD was initially impacted by a poor inflation number but came back after the US jobs data were released a few hours later.

    Behind the scenes commodity price indexes are having a good run of their own as contrarian traders notice the wide valuation gap (see chart)

    Hi Stephen. The SL has been broken. Do you still view long term downside or has the view changed with the recent price increase? Thanks.

    For now the momentum is higher.
    Let it ride for few days and it can be reviewed.
