    mini SP futures; The U.S. stock indexes have some some profit taking recently, amid the "dog days" of summer. This is not surprising and it's not unhealthy for the bull market run. The stock index bulls still have the solid overall near-term technical advantage and there are no early clues of a market top being close at hand. That means the path of least resistance for prices will remain sideways to higher until there is a significantly bearish technical development that crops up. Stay tuned!
