US equity indexes closed a little higher, sp +1pt @ 2102 (intra high 2111). The two leaders - Trans/R2K, settled u/c and +0.2% respectively. Near term outlook still offers cooling to the gap zone of 2065/61, but a monthly close <2050 looks increasingly difficult.
*closing hour action: distinct closing hour weakness, swinging from a new intra high of 2111.05.
Despite the closing hour weakness.. it was unquestionably another day for the equity bears, as most equity indexes broke new multi-month highs.
Even if we somehow cool to the obvious gap zone in the 2060s, it will do little to negate the broader upward trend since February.
