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. The latter, in particular, should take over the bullish torch from its U.S. counterpart and run with it until the end of this bull market.

Technical Indicators (for the S&P/TSX composite index) are all positive. All major Moving Averages are rising; the short-term moving average convergence-divergence (MACD) and the stochastic indicator have just produced buy signals.
