These Two Neighbors Made Important New Highs


The US market has been dinging the new high bell for a while. But most of the world was still out for lunch in the back half of 2020 and did not have new buyers showing up for work to keep the buying party rolling. Some of that is starting to change as we kick off 2021.

Let me start with America's neighbor to the south and the third party in the USCAM agreement.

Mexico hit new 52-week highs to start the year. Bullish! I don't want to point out that it did the same pattern last year and failed to hold the breakout. But as another positive, the PPO wave is the highest it's been on the chart. That is very strong momentum. It was a lot more tepid in the start of 2020.

Canada, the neighbor to the north and the second party in the USCAM agreement, also had a great start to 2021. It finally broke out to new 52-week highs as well. At this point, it is still testing a prior high, but breaking out to new all-time highs is a great way to kick off 2021. Notice the PPO breaking out to 5-year highs on the chart, suggesting strong momentum!

On another note, is also breaking out to new highs! After a big year in 2020, we have a lot more planned for 2021. This week, I received numerous compliments on the quality of the weekly videos and how much members cherish the clear, descriptive intermarket analysis.
