The Wilshire 5000 is taking investors where they have never gone before, as it breaks into all-time high territory at (1) in the chart below.
The NYSE Comp is currently 13% below the highs set back in 2007 and is facing an important line in the sand, dating back to the late 1990′s at (2). The line highlights several emotional highs/lows over the past 13 years.
The Wilshire breaking to all-time highs reflects quality broad market price action. Can the NYSE break above resistance at (2) and work towards taking investors to where they have never gone before? A break above (2) would be a good sign for the markets!
