With the Russell and Nasdaq making a higher high today there is no longer any doubt that this is a consolidation within a long term bull market. That being said I think it’s probably still too early for a breakout and run to 10,000. We probably have more back and forth trading ahead for at least another month or two. But the perma bears got it wrong again (remember the calls for an 87 style crash back in February?). Over and over they keep making the same mistake. If they try hard enough they may mange to miss an entire secular bull market because they can’t get the memory of 2009 out of their head.
10,000 is going to be a piece of cake, and by 2030 the Nasdaq is going to be a long long ways above 10,000.
