Unexpectedly Intriguing!
16 January 2017

The second week of January 2017 proved to be yet another disappointment for those focused on the Dow Jones Industrials (NYSE: DJI) and its now month-long quest to finally reach the magical 20,000 milestone, even as the Nasdaq index (Nasdaq: IXIC) hit a new record high.

Meanwhile, the S&P 500 in Week 2 of January 2017 kept bouncing along just below its week old all-time record high. Not that any of that was in any way unexpected....
