Our ongoing Broader Narrative continues to be successful as the market simply continues to trade higher in the ongoing uptrend.

As we’ve been highlighting every day to members, price simply developed multiple Trend Days in an ongoing short-squeeze reversal up away from the higher time frame support level (the bottom near 2,040 in the @ES).

At the moment, we’re watching 2,110 (@ES) and upwards toward 2,120 for short-term intraday plays.

The weakest two sectors in another bullishly-dominated day are the Materials and Energy sectors.

All other sectors enjoy strong positive breadth, though Staples (a defensive name)—along with Utilities—reveal Thursday’s relative strength leadership.

That’s actually not a resounding bullish signal (given that strength is in the defensive names Thursday).

Here are Thursday’s strongest trending (intraday) names—candidates for pro-trend continuation:
