Long-term and under the covers, the market is still bullish

The stock market has moved to a loss for January. However, the longer-term view shows the stock market still bullish. In fact, the Nasdaq Composite is till above its longer-term trend channel that began in October 2011. Prices are completely contained within
their respective trend channels of the same period for both the S&P and DOW suggesting this trend will continue. Last week’s losses in the DOW and S&P have merely moved the price away from near the top supply line.
