The Bottom Line

Broadly based U.S. equity indices moved higher while other developed world equity indices were mixed last week. Seasonal influences for broadly based equity indices turned favourable as usual in mid-October and usually remain positive until the first week in January.

Observations

Favourable seasonal influences on broadly based U.S. equity indices were extended last week. The S&P 500 Index and Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at all-time closing highs. Strength in North American equity indices continued as expected during their strongest twelve week period of the year from mid-October to the the first week in January. Strongest broadly based U.S. equity index last week once again was the Dow Jones Transportation Average.
