Chart of the Week: NYSE Making New Highs

The DOW and NASDAQ continue to make higher lows and the
NASDAQ recently held critical support recently and bounced. Couple these near

Kevin Lane notes that “It is hard to envision a harsh
sell-off while the NYSE Composite Index is making new highs. All this recent
activity suggests to us that we may be able to challenge the upper end of the
range again.”
