Midday Market Commentary For 04-10-2013

Very strong market place today as the major averages climbed unabated on moderate volume. As the volume fell to normal low readings the indices started to level out with only a hint of climbing higher.

The big question is just how 'real' are these new market highs. Many investors are waiting for the other shoe to drop, while the perma bulls say, see, I told you so. Never the less, my proprietary indicators are barely bullish contrary to market sentiment signaling caution.
