The above chart has the SPYs in 15 minute intervals since the end of December. Notice that -- with the exception of the late February sell-off -- the same trend line supports the entire rally. An argument could be made that the sell-off formed a reverse head and shoulders formation, but I think the actual formation is a bit weak for that description to stick.
On the daily chart, note that while the actual candles and underlying volume are a bit weak, the other technicals are still very strong. The MACD has given a but signal and the CMF shows volume inflow. In addition, the EMA picture is very strong.
The underlying technicals for the transports are similar to those of the SPYs. What is important with this that is that the transports are also moving into record territory, confirming the SPYs move.
And finally, we have the Russell 2000 ETF, which is also confirming the new move higher.

The Bonddad Economic History Project
At the beginning of 2012, I decided to start looking at the actual, statistical history of the US economy starting in 1950. The reason is simple: to find out what really happened. So, when you see title of a post that begins with a year such as 1957, followed by "employment" or "Fed policy: you know what it's for. You can also access the information by typing in BE for Bonddad econ and a year to find information on a particular year.
Here is a link to pages that contain links to all the posts on the years listed.
