Markets traded positively for most of the day, although ended up closing slightly down by 31 points. This is the 10th time since 1950 that the SP500 has been up for 5 months in a row, so it certainly has happened enough before, but interesting that when I looked at those time periods 12 months following, they were also all in positive territory as well. All that said, earnings and fundamentals are going to have to pull their weight for that to happen an 11th time from these valuations (see David’s comments below).

Historically speaking, it’s also rare to see markets top when there is such broad participation in new 52-week highs. Typically, that internal breadth starts to show cracks before the overall market reaches its cycle peak and turns lower, and that is not what we are seeing today. Energy, by the way, has reaccelerated, with now 80% of the sector at 3-month highs, as that market rotation and broadening of sector returns continues.
