"State of the Market" with Tom, Erin and Arthur Hill (0:20:34):

Three of our popular technical analysts had a lively debate during the first part of the show discussing their thoughts on what to expect during the second half of 2018. Erin shared her Dow 'predictions' from Timer Digest's Forecast Edition back in January and how she still stood by her Dow 28,900 by year end. Arthur made comparisons between leadership within the industrial and financial sectors for the second half of the year. And, Tom told everyone about his bullishness on the Dollar and what that could mean for small-caps in the final half of this year.
