Despite all the worrisome news headlines, US Equity and Global Markets climbed last week. The broad market as measured by the S&P 500 closed the week very close to its all-time high of 3,022.55. The NASDAQ 100, the proxy for the QQQ, hit new highs last week. November and December are typically positive months for US Equity Markets and we appear to be heading that way. Traders should be aware that Google reports earnings on Monday to be followed by Facebook and Apple on Wednesday.
