A rash of bearish divergences on Twiggs Money Flow warns of heightened selling pressure across a number of markets. Fund managers are also dressing up their balance sheets for the quarter end. Expect prices to hold until June 30th. Then all bets are off.

USA

Dow Jones Industrial Average

The Dow is consolidating in a narrow range between 8600 and 8900, with declining volume. This normally signals continuation, but if we examine the pattern closely we find a series of doji candles, with closing price artificially supported at 8800 — rather than oscillating healthily between the upper and lower borders. In the long term, expect strong resistance at 9000 — followed by a secondary correction to test primary support at 6500. Breakout above 9000 is unlikely, but would offer a weak reversal signal — to a primary up-trend.

S&P 500

The S&P 500 displays a similar pattern to the Dow, consolidating between 930 and 950. Weak bearish divergence on Twiggs Money Flow (21-Day) would be strengthened if the indicator retreats to zero. Breakout above 950 would indicate a rally to test 1000, while reversal below 930 would signal the end of the bear market rally.
