Stocks Surge Higher With Authority
All of the major stock market indices saw more all time highs but this time it looked like a serious bull rush with the market opening flatish and pushing higher and higher all day. Some of the “old” defensive leaders came back to life like healthcare, consumer staples and utilities. This market is beginning to feel like a melt up which usually sees even more vertical gains, but which also ends in ruins. In my 2013 forecast, I called for a front loaded year with the gains early and I am not wavering from that. 1987 has been stuck in my mind since late last year and this is how it felt back then.
