The market has not only shown an impressive resilience during the political commotion but has also responded well to the forces of a new cycle. It all bodes well for the market going into the festive season.
Some back-and-forth activity is still an option for a while, as the new 105-day cycle evolves, but technical and cyclical evidence points to higher targets for both New York and Toronto.
