    MSFT now making a run for its’ all-time high clearing all previous highs since Sept. It’s been a long period of consolidation. AAPL I believe made an all-time high close yesterday. GOOGL I regret missing. AMZN may be the next one to make a run sometime soon. On all of these stocks that have consolidated you have a rising 200 day MA that has really closed the distance from market price. The FANGM group was dead money for some time but not anymore.

  2. Larry/ON Says:

    Missed one A there FAANGM.

  3. Larry/ON Says:

    UMC – Taiwanese semi making new highs after a recent consolidation period. Not overbought.

  4. Ron/BC Says:

    I can’t get over how many Alberta and Ontario license plates I see in Victoria,B.C. Also see a few Manitoba and Quebec as well as Nova Scotia. Oddly enough very few Washington State plates which is right next door. No one though is talking about putting a bounty on them……………………………yet.

  5. Ron/BC Says:

    Here is a 20 Year WEEKLY CHART of the $SPX. I can’t help but notice that price is now 1200 points above its well established long term uptrendline from 2009. Or 900 points above its 200ema. I’m amazed that very little has been said about this extreme distortion and its implications. (Caveat Emptor).

  6. Larry/ON Says:

    Re 5 – From 2000 to 2021 the SPX has advanced from a peak of 1553 to 3841. Not much for 21 years. It works out to just over a 4% yearly compounded increase without adjusting for inflation.

  7. Ron/BC Says:

    #6
    From 2000 to 2013 the $SPX just traded sideways too…………..Price “ALWAYS” comes back to its long term trendlines. Any chart will tell you that. All the “rah,rah,rah” we’re going to the moon talk has never defied this fact. That’s another attitude that has never changed. I guess a person has to tell them selves that type of thing to justify the risk they are taking.

  8. Larry/ON Says:

    RON/BC – I provided an observation. I’m not saying the market is not overbought. Can you give us the same chart you provided but on a logarithmic scale and determine how far we are above the long=term trendline?

  9. Ron/BC Says:

    #8

    All a Logarithmic chart will do is make the chart look less overextended so less worrisome as it shows price changes as a percentage. Linear (arithmetic) charts show “absolute value”. Most human beings think linear as when price of anything goes up or down they think of “absolute value” made or lost, not what percentage increase or decrease the change was. You don’t spend percentages, you spend actual dollars.

    re: #8,9,etc.

    No ‘fighting’ you two, we need (and value) both of your viewpoints and conributions!
