The above 5-pack shows many of the leading global markets are at/near key resistance levels.  How these relative strength global markets handle resistance should impact/ripple into the performance of the S&P 500 in the upcoming weeks and months.

Keep an eye on these relative strength winners, for a clue to how the broad markets in the U.S, will handle similar resistance lines!

Premium members have been long EFA/Short SPY for months and the market neutral trade has been working very well!
