    Investors are looking at the same chart but they are seeing different things .
    Look at SPX chart , 2 years time frame .
    Some investors will see only the big rally from december 2018 = 2346 until today 2884 .
    I see that in January 2018 SPX was 2872 and today , 14 months later , is 2884 .
    No increase in 14 months !
    SPX companies did made no profits in last 14 months ?
    No , they did made profits so = P/E is lower than 14 months ago = stocks are cheaper than 14 months ago
    Maybe , maybe , the earnings recessions is already priced in ?
    Maybe The stock market anticipated this “earnings recesion” 6 months ago ?
    Earnings are coming .
    We will see the market reaction .

    Nasdaq – New YTD High Today. The slow grind continues. There is a lot of scepticism which is much better than euphoria. I suspect that money is inching into the market as holders of cash decide to join in. Easiest bet is QQQ. I think MSFT is ready to make new highs with an ascending triangle pattern. It’s a well loved stock. I’ve attached Jim Cramer’s take on the market.

    You have more patience than I have to watch Jim even though he may make some good points.
    I would rather watch paint dry.
