Where the SPX strength is coming from

More US market thoughts on the back of this early piece:

Equities market thoughts:

  • Plenty of trade war and Fed related doom and gloom, but earnings are killing it.
  • Of the almost 400 names that make up the S&P 500, that have reported earnings this season, about 85% of them beat analysts' estimates - How about that for a stat!
  • The S&P 500 rallied as Apple's market cap reached $1 trillion. Yes TRILLION.
  • This is why there is so much strength in the SPX

Chart musings:

  • We've done this before, but it's all about that all time high resistance zone.
  • Just don't underestimate the strength of this market.
