Breakout Day 3. Don't Miss Out!

The buy low, sell high mentality makes it very hard for many investors to chase an ever rising market. But at some point they will get on the bandwagon.

I believe that is happening now as the breakout above 1600 was a signal that the bull train was ready to leave the station once again. Especially true as the 3 straight closes above 1600 are helping to solidify this as a new level of support.

With that now in place, expect shares to probe higher.
