2013 - From a technical perspective

US equities

Few at the very start of 2012 – myself included - believed that US stocks would enjoy decent gains over the year. They have done just that, though. I quickly abandoned my pessimistic outlook as the Wall Street indices got off to a flying start. I remained bullish in my big picture despite the summertime dip, correctly believing it to be a mere correction within a bull market. I reckon Wall Street should continue to press higher in 2013. Continued loose money from central banks worldwide and no US recession are the fundamental drivers of this. I believe the S&P 500 could revisit its all-time high of 1577 next year, with the Dow Jones retaking its record peak at 14198.
