Our favored Nasdaq 100 (QQQ) has been marching strongly upward, along with the small-cap Russell 2000, breaking to new highs and continuing to find buyers.  Unlike 2017, however, this market strength is not so broad-based.  International stocks have been flat, with the rising U.S. dollar keeping the pressure on those indexes.
