NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- The S&P 500, along with most broad-market index ETFs such as the SPDR S&P 500 (SPY), SPDR Dow Jones (DIA) and ProShares Q's (QQQQ), made fresh all-time highs on the last trading day in March. Are such new highs fundamentally warranted?On a one-month view, fundamentals do not seem supportive. On a one- to two-year view, fundamentals appear to be quite supportive.
