The Dow Industrial Average pull-back respected resistance at 10000. Light volume on the up-swing and stronger volume on the decline warn of further weakness. 

The primary trend has reversed; following the NASDAQ into a down-trend.
In the next few weeks, there could still be a stronger (intermediate) pull-back to re-test resistance at 10000.

Twiggs Money Flow signals strong distribution.

The Nasdaq Composite primary trend continues downward.

Twiggs Money Flow signals strong distribution.

The S&P 500 pulled back on light volume and failed to break the first level of resistance at 1080. The primary trend has turned downward. 
We could still later see a stronger (intermediate pull-back re-test resistance at 1080/1100.

Twiggs Money Flow signals strong distribution, with continued peaks below the signal line.

NYSE Bullish Percent

The NYSE Bullish Percent Index has fallen to 53.47%, continuing the strong bear signal.

Treasury yields

The yield on 10-year treasury notes has fallen below immediate support, reflecting a flow of capital from the equities markets. 
Rising energy prices and weaker economic data may force the Fed to slow down on further rates increases. 
Expect a re-test of support at 3.50% (or 3.60%). 

The yield differential (10-year T-notes minus 13-week T-bills) is just below 3.0% - still healthy. 
Low differentials, of below 1.0%, are strong bear signals.


New York: Spot gold rallied to $398.60, again testing resistance at $400 - a bullish sign. 
Long-term support is at $375 and resistance at $427.25. A breakout below/above these levels will signal resumption of the primary trend.

ASX Australia

The All Ordinaries displayed reasonable buying support from [m] to [w] but this faded. Sellers were firmly in control by Friday [f] with a break below support at 3500. US sentiment appears to be weighing down the local market.

The fall below 3500 is likely to test support at 3450. If that level holds, it would be a long-term bull signal.
If the level fails to hold and the index falls below 3350, this will signal reversal of the primary trend.

Twiggs Money Flow has dropped sharply, signaling that sellers are in control.

Incredible Charts - What's New!

This is the last revision before the promised Stock Screen upgrade. Changes are largely to improve ease of use, but there is a significant improvement to Equivolume charts.

Equivolume Charts - Now with Candlesticks
Equivolume charts now default to Candlevolume format.
This means that Open, High, Low and Close are displayed on the chart in the same format as regular candlesticks. The only difference is that the width of the bar depicts volume, and shadows are depicted by a lighter color shade. Take a look at the AMD chart below:

Bar colors are:
  • Blue if the Close is Higher than the Open (or green depending on your color scheme);
  • Red if the Open is higher than the Close; and
  • The same color as the previous bar if the Open and Close are equal.
Select View >> Advanced Options >> Display Equivolume HLC if you want to revert to the old format.

Colin Twiggs

A basic need of all human beings is to make a positive
contribution to the world and to our fellow beings,
as well as to improve and enjoy our personal lives.
We all have a great deal to offer the world and each other,
each in our own special and unique way.
To a great degree, our own personal sense of well being
is a function of how much we are expressing this..
