Highest Percentage Of Stocks Above 50 Day M.A. Since Mid-2006

The highly respected folks at Bespoke Investment Group has further evidence confirming the current market rally. It will take a lot to derail the current uptrend. According to the people at Bespoke Research, as the market continues to rally, the percentage of companies now trading above their 50-day moving averages also continues to rise. As shown below, 92% of the stocks in the S&P 500 are now trading above their 50-days. This is by far the highest reading since mid-2006, and it is indicative of extremely strong market breadth.


Every sector except Health Care and Consumer Staples has a >50-DMA reading of more than 90%. The Consumer Staples sector is at 88%, and Health Care is at 75%. Telecom only has 9 stocks in the sector, and all of them are trading above their 50-days. The Industrials sector ranks second at 98%, followed by Energy and Utilities at 97%. While still high, Financials and Consumer Discretionary have actually seen a decline in the percentage of stocks above their 50-days over the last week. The indicator maxes out at 100%, so there isn't currently much upside room from a breadth perspective. A pullback in these extraordinary numbers would be neither surprising nor unhealthy.

My Master, A National Treasure

REPOST:  Its been more than two years since I posted on my sifu. This is probably the most significant posting I had done thus far that does not involve business or politics. My circle of close friends and business colleagues have benefited significantly from his treatment.

My Master, Dr. Law Chin Han (from my iPhone)

Where shall I start? OK, just based on real life experiences of those who are close to me. The entire Tong family (Bukit Kiara Properties) absolutely swear that he is the master of masters when it comes to acupuncture (and dentistry as well). To me, you can probably find many great dentists, but to find a real Master in acupuncture, thats a whole different ballgame.

I am not big aficionado of Chinese medicine or acupuncture initially. I guess you have to go through the whole shebang to appreciate the real life changing effects from a master.

My business partner and very close friend went to him after 15 years of persistent gout problem, he will get his heavy attacks at least…

Passengers - Go Watch It

Passengers. Brilliant story telling. Visionary yet believable. Like Martian, only better. Space travel, science, romantic, desolation, philosophical, mortality n its devastation, spectacular imagery. Being human n humane. 9.7/10
