The 2019 rally continued for another week, although the Dow did close the week slightly off.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed lower by just -0.1%, which was just enough to snap a nine-week winning streak, the longest weekly run since May of 1995.

The Nasdaq closed higher for the 10th consecutive week, adding another +0.9% and remained above its 200-day moving average. It may now be facing some resistance of its previous highs/lows.

For the week, the S&P 500 gained +0.4%, marked its first close above the psychologically 2,800 level since Nov. 8th. Pundits point out that level has proved a key point of resistance over the past several trading sessions. As I noted last week, 2815 is the previous highs and that level now deserves watching.

The market’s current rally-run has been impressive, but could possibly be starting to consolidate here. That would actually be ideal, considering the advance from the Christmas Eve lows.

In the past 11 weeks, the Dow Jones Industrials and the S&P 500 have advanced +20%, while the Nasdaq Composite has jumped +25%.

Over the years, there has been just a handful of these professionals who have stood out from the rest, and who I would highly recommend to anyone who is looking for professional guidance.

One of them is Jack Elvestrom and here’s why…
