this was touched on in another thread, but the thread suffered from many of the usual ET thread problems but in my opinion, this is one of *the* key technical analysis issues in the market at this time (IE, counterintuitive signals being sent in the market) - my inclination is bearish, but manipulation (which has been present in the market from the beginning of time) or not, transports are rallying. maybe they're rallying to a 'head and shoulders', but they're approaching new highs nonetheless some say it's the ag boom. but i'm in an ag state, corn is being planted in fields that always had corn. are there really that many more crops being planted? (although grain may being moved from storage to market to sell at strong prices) is this enough to make up for all the housing materials that clearly are NOT being moved? i'm perpelexed by this any constructive comments on this?
