Mid-Year Update

By -

Greetings from Revolution HQ in sunny Tennessee.  I must say the first half of this year has flown by.  It seems like just a moment ago I wrote “A Revolutionary 2021” to give my thoughts on the upcoming year.  As we prepare to head into what should be an exciting second half of the year, I wanted to take a moment to examine what I’ll be on the lookout for.

Let’s begin with the broader market, and then I’ll work my way into some of the other sectors that I am involved in.  Looking at the past year on /ES we can see that after a bit of consolidation last fall, we have been on a simple, steady ascent higher since.  Thus far 2021 has been a series of higher highs, and higher lows.  Do I believe that is going to change at any point this year?  Yes, but not yet.
