This Friday option expiration stayed in tight range pinned at the SPX 4200. It is clear that bears who tried to time this market top who are overleveraged are now cleansed from the game. They are not wrong per se based on broad measurements of the stock market. However they failed to take into account that Nasdaq 100 and S&P 500 are both market capitalization weighted (in greatly simplified terms). Hence all it takes is a few stock market leaders going higher will power up the indices when 90% or more of the components are going nowhere.
As I pointed out in my newsletter for my premium members, bears need to understand that it is wrong to think the chart is telling them that the indices are going lower. The charts are telling them that the indices are venerable to steep correction should anything really bad happens. As long as such event has not happened, the slow climb can continue just like year 1999.

As usual I have to keep working even for a Canadian long weekend because US holidays do not always line up. This week is one of those.
Have a great weekend all!
