US Stocks Limp to new highs

The S&P500 and DJIA both limped to new highs last session but most other instruments, other than GBP pairs, are little changed. I'm wondering if the northern summer doldrums may continue to plague markets until Jackson Hole?

GBP/USD 30 min: a choppy Asian and early European session here too but note how the ADX was a good guide here as well! NB: there was no TC signal after the Asian/European Box closed, for a bit of time, as price action was IN the 30 min Cloud:
