Market Technical Levels

With markets recording new all-time highs on the backdrop of the expectation of the approval of a new stimulus package we have updated technical levels for the S&P 500 Index (SPXX), the Dow Jones Industrial Average (INDU), and the Nasdaq Composite Index (COMPQ). Favorable seasonality factors as well as year-end window dressing activities will likely lead to higher prices in key stock market indexes toward the end of the year and possibly into early next year. However, the rally will lead to an overbought market condition prompting another consolidation next year.
