By Jeremy Salsburg NEUTRAL SILVER LINING Intermediate term (1-3 months) ASSET ADVISORS A closer look at the S&P 500 Market commentary provided by Jeremy Salsburg of Silver Lining Asset Advisors, LLC This move higher in stocks now looks to have broken higher above the top channel line O of the rising wedge, so we'll probably see higher highs over March. It could result in a triple top for the SPX around 1560, or we could keep heading higher throughout the year.
