Dear @TrendFollower , you probably wont like this response but , I just trade what I see, not what I think. There is so much geopolitical stuff going on that it could screw your thinking. However, the politicians & Central Bankers seem to prefer the markets going up, any dips & the Central Banks come to the rescue.. We are over halfway through the US Presidential cycle & I'm sure Potus will want everything looking good next year.
I attach a current chart. As you see we are back at a trend line resistance. I have suggested some consolidation @ here before a further move up, but who knows. Short term trend is up, but you could also say that the market looks sideways albeit in a big range. Sideways is my best guess
