Unexpectedly Intriguing!
12 July 2021

The S&P 500 (Index: SPX) broke its seven day winning streak to start the week and though it wavered, it closed the Fourth of July holiday-shortened week at a new high.

In doing that, it confirmed our observation that investors have shifted their forward-looking attention to the more distant future quarter of 2022-Q1. We see that confirmation as the redzone forecast ranges reached its end, with the level of the index coinciding with where the dividend futures-based model indicates it would be if investors fixed their sights on that more distant future quarter.
