Toppy Tuesday (Yet Again)

Toppy Tuesday (Yet Again)This is the chart from August 24th:

I made a new one but, since it's monthly, you can't see any difference so let's just use the one I put up the last time I called it "Toppy Tuesday (Again) – S&P 500 Tests 4,500 (Again)."  Yes, we were higher a month ago – closing just over 4,350 yesterday and we're clearly hitting strong resistance at that 4,500 line that, so far, has not proven to be futile.  

Last month, I warned:

An endless series of low-volume rallies is not enough to get you over a major level on the S&P 500 so, once again, we are being rejected at the 4,500 level.  EVEN IF there were no stimulus and this were an honest 28% increase in earnings – we are still 20% too high at 4,500.  This is not sustainable – especially if the Government isn't going to throw in another few Trillion Dollars to keep things humming next year.   

As you can see, it took the S&P 4 years to get from 2,000 to 3,000 (up 50%) and that 1,000 point rally had two 500-point pullbacks along the way.  This is our first attempt at 4,500, less than 2 years after crossing 3,000 and that's a 1,500-point rally and the pullback we'll be looking for is 3,750 at some point, which is only down 16.66% – so not too big a deal if it happens (and we hold it).

There is something very, very wrong with us that we're not even TRYING to stop Covid in the US.  Perhaps it's a symptom of the virus that does something to your
