Comment: There is not much change from last week except that more retail investors are catching the bull fever. Technical readings are bullish while sentiment is so bullish it’s a red flag.  While some pros are predicting a major correction, others keep blindly buying at all time highs. Eventually, the market will stop climbing but for now, the bulls are in control. Lately, investors are hopeful there will be another Christmas rally. We shall see.
