In case you missed it, here’s a summary of the ETF topics and market reviews I posted to my blog during the week ending on 2/26/2012.
Meandering with an upside bias best describes the trend of the past week. The major indexes have reached a crucial point which, if broken to the upside, could mean further advances and confirmation of the current bull market. The milestones are 1,370 for the S&P 500 and 13,000 for the Dow.
If momentum weakens, and these hurdles are not overcome, the downside could come into play again, which should not be surprising given the fact that we have not seen a decent market pullback this year.
