S&P 500 above its 200-day moving average following a broad sector recovery
The stock market extended its rally this week on continued optimism about an economic recovery and a fear of missing out on further gains. The S&P500 was up +3.0% for the week, base on a nice uptrend in All 11 S&P 500 sectors which had finished in the green and supported the S&P 500 to close above its 200 days moving average.
U.S.-China relations are front news again as there was uncertainty regarding China approving legislation to tighten its control over Hong Kong.
Trump said the U.S. will remove special treatment for Hong Kong, will review practices of companies from China on U.S. financial exchanges, and will terminate its relationship with the HWO (World Health Organization), as he is trying to maneuver domestic riots from home.

This Time It’s Different ?
During the market meltdown of March-April, I saw many posts trying to compare the current crisis with the crisis of 2008 and even 1929.
How can this crisis be compared to the previous ones when there is nothing that is similar between this and previous crisis other than the fact that this is a crisis!
Everything is different now – not the same economy, market valuations, reasons for the crisis, government, fed … And even if you could compare, every statistician will tell you that a sample of two is barely enough to get a reliable result, so the comparison is meaningless.
The desire to compare comes from the human inability to live in uncertainty for long, we just have to find the crumbs in the forest to lead us home even if they are simply not there.
