The S&P failed to set a new high on Friday but it also failed to post a material decline.

The Dow, S&P, Russell 3000 ($RUA) and Vanguard Total Market Index (VTI) are all at new highs but the Nasdaq Composite, Nasdaq 100, Russell 2000 and NYSE Composite are all well below their prior highs. The market is churning slowly upward as portfolio managers chase performance. While it could continue there is always a risk of a reversal ahead of the normal seasonal weakness in Aug/Sept.
