Risk assets seeking breakout velocity?
A variety of risk assets are flirting with breakouts.

The S&P is also breaking above its primary trendline resistance:
Both Copper and the S&P have a higher trendline that could serve as resistance based upon two outlier days in April. The Emerging Markets chart (EEM) doesn’t have that qualifier and has the beginnings of a breakout:
Additionally, high yields have rallied hard along with equities, though in general they have not yet recovered enough to face trendline resistance.
