  • Market making new momentum lows
  • Stochastic registering a buy signal
  • Volume increased today on the sell-day… distribution
  • Clear momentum divergence now unwinding

  • Momentum not making new lows and not clearly diverging
  • Price is clearly in a trading range now with support at 2,540 until broken


  • Market making new momentum lows
  • Price broke the 50 period MA – are small caps in trouble?
  • Nearing stochastic buy also
  • Price almost made a new momentum high recently – no price divergence
  • Price is also in a trading range – recently experienced a failed breakout (up)

Please see the Market Summary at StockCharts.com.  I could do a repost of an earlier blog entry where I pulled each segment of the daily action and everything was ‘in the red’ except bond yeilds.  This was the (almost) exact same scenario as occurred Thursday, June 7th.  Many such ominous down days (where bears take a swipe at everything) cannot be good for the overall market unless buyers find value at lower prices where everything is ‘wounded’.

Here is a teaser of the StockCharts page (each Industry was down):


Last time, the buyers found value and drove the indexes up after the “bloody” day.  The question on everyone’s mind has become:  Will it happen again?
