The Dow Industrial Average fell sharply during the week, on moderate volume. Friday's weak close shows a brief period of consolidation before a re-test of the 10000 support level; a bearish sign.
Twiggs Money Flow is falling sharply, signaling distribution.
Twiggs Money Flow reflects indecision, having reversed back below the signal line.
The primary trend is still downward
The longer term consolidation pattern continues. An intermediate trough above 1100 would be a bullish sign, while a peak below 1100 would be bearish.
The NYSE Bullish Percent Index is at 63.30%, continuing the bear correction.
The yield on 10-year treasury notes is testing support at 4.00%, briefly dipping below the level before recovering. Market consensus (after the Fed increased rates by 0.25% on Tuesday) appears to be that future rates increases will be gradual.
The yield differential (10-year T-notes minus 13-week T-bills) eased to 2.4%.
Differentials below 1.0% are long-term bear signals.
New York: Spot gold eased slightly to $407.60.
Price is consolidating above support at $400, establishing a base for further gains.
The All Ordinaries has encountered profit-taking towards the end of the week. Strong volume and a close near the low indicate that sellers are in control. The correction may test the first level of support at 3600.
However, in the longer term, expect a re-test of support at 3450.

But make allowance for their doubting too,
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:
