Nemo's Findings week of 5/12/2013

(Course on chart pattern recognition is available now:

Saw an interesting analysis this week:  At the 2007 peak the S&P profits worked out to $83 bucks a share at a high of $156.70.  Well, S&P profits are now at $105.  So, given the same ratio  $198 is a reasonable target for the SPY.  And here's a look at the finnies:  

Pick your poison, the finnies are only about halfway back to their peak.  Having said that. if much of that were a bubble, then there  we can see old support new resistance should be tested soon.
