The bullish tidings continue.

T2108 continued its startlingly fast run-up toward overbought conditions with a close at 65.0%. T2108 is on pace to hit overbought conditions on Friday, October 9, 2015. If not then, next week looks like a slam dunk. T2108 was last at current levels when the S&P 500 (SPY) was still making new all-time highs back in April. Today, Thursday, the S&P 500 managed to push through resistance at its 50DMA and is challenging the intraday high from September. This high neatly divided two oversold periods.

The S&P 500 breaks out above its 50DMA for the first time in two months
