Technicals Suggest ‘Assault on 2007 Peaks’

Historical indicators are improving enough that this week’s stock lull might represent a pause before a possible return to 2007 highs, technical analyst Louise Yamada said Tuesday on CNBC.

“The moving averages are rising, so I think you probably have the possibility here for an assault on the 2007 peaks,” she said on “Fast Money.”

“It looks as though we have a little bit farther to go, so we accept the rally. We think the Fed has probably fueled a hot-air balloon, if you will,” said Yamada of Louise Yamada Technical Research Advisors.

“It could go a little bit farther, and what we’re getting this week is perhaps just a little pause prior to moving up.”
