AS I SEE IT: The Chinese market fell 6% in overnight trading when they raised taxes on stock transactions, and the S&P was 7 points lower early this morning. When the opening bell rang on the NYSE the S&P started to rally, and except for a pull back mid-day it didn’t look back. Both the Dow and the S&P closed at new all time highs. This market is still on fire and I believe it will continue to move higher until there is a global event that brings it down. If the S&P rallies in overnight trading I will sell it back to today’s close.
