The Robinson Report: S&P 500 Hits New All-Time High

However, tepid inflation, waning global trade fears, and the better than expected corporate earnings growth has sent U.S. stocks soaring to lofty levels on moderate volume turning previous overhead resistance around $2870 into new support. As we stated last week, the new all-time high now means that the current U.S. stock market rally that began back in 2009 is officially the longest rally in U.S. history. Read our full analysis here.

In addition, the S&P 500 held firm support at its 14 EMA on the week and sits well above a rising 200 DMA. Read our full analysis here.
