New highs across the board on the major indexes. Our previous “line in the sand” from around 2350 is now moved up to 2400.
This is an incredibly strong market. If we do manage to correct, it will be most likely through time and rotational in nature. There are some areas where picking up some short exposure makes sense, just make sure to really pick your spots so you don’t get runover.
Trade #1: MA
The stock is up 7.5% in a 10 day period, which doesn’t happen often into range extensions. Expect this to correct and consolidate.
Expected Price: 127

Trade #2: FDX
