Twiggs Money Flow has crossed back below its signal line. A fall below the March 24 low would be a strong bear signal.
Twiggs Money Flow, however, has fallen to a new 3-month low - a strong bear signal.
The Chartcraft Bullish Percent Index has retreated to 71.02%. A fall below 70 will signal a Bear Alert.
The yield on 10-year treasury notes broke through resistance at 4.50%, signaling the start of a primary up-trend. This has been followed by a pull-back to test the new support level. A rise above 4.67% would add further confirmation of the trend change.
The yield differential (10-year T-notes minus 13-week T-bills) is a healthy 3.5%; with long-term investors demanding a healthy premium for tying up their capital.
New York: Spot gold has fallen to $386.80, breaking through support at 390 and signaling reversal of the primary trend.

This question continually crops up: "How do I get the Weekly or Monthly charts to update daily instead of weekly or monthly?"
If you use weekly or monthly price bars or indicators, the chart will only adjust at the end of each completed week/month. To reflect the latest partially-completed period:
- select File >> Advanced Features >> Display Part-Periods
For this reason I use daily indicators wherever possible. For example, use a daily MACD with settings of 130, 60,45 instead of a weekly MACD with settings of 26,12,9. However, with indicators that use highs and lows, such as the Stochastic, daily and weekly trading ranges are completely different.
I want to tell you this: It never was my thinking that made the big money for me.
It always was my sitting.... My sitting tight!
