S&P 500 Sets Up to Bust Above 2,000 After Another Slow Day

"More men have become great through practice than by nature." -- Democritus

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- We saw a quieter day once again as we blow off a bit of steam from recent moves. I'm still not seeing any signs of a top whatsoever, even as the S&P 500 approaches the coveted 2,000 level.

It looks like we will move past 2,000 early next week to me, but I've been wrong before.

There are still a lot of leader stocks that have great buy points set up and I've covered those this past week for subscribers.

We're ready to go as soon as buy points are hit.

Great stuff from the S&P 500 SPDR ETF  (SPY)   as it sets up to move past $200 sooner rather than later by the looks of it.

I didn't expect this type of move in August -- but I'll take it any day.
