On the Rise Once Again

Tuesday's solid gains seem to provide confirmation of a breakout above the 50 day moving average at 1665. More strong data out of China and further signs of a peaceful resolution with Syria were the main catalysts on the day.

What happens now?

The previous highs of 1709 are less than 2% above the Tuesday close. That is very little ground to make up and we should have little trouble getting there. The main issue is what will it take to get above?

The answer is likely a continuation of the strong economic data we have seen of late and time to resolve the lingering question marks before us (notably Syria and the debt limit). I suspect that will be the case with a year-end target between 1750 and 1800.
