recovery from the COVID drop has been spectacular, quick, complex, and shifting. The market’s broadening, now, including the financials, and cyclicals. And what’s that about? Speculation, not economic expansion. But it also reflects investors repositioning at smart prices for more recovery.

Far larger study charts are newly posted under our utterly rebuilt “Portfolio” link;
