The Dow Industrial Average broke through resistance at 10000 after another pull-back. Light volume on the rally signals a lack of commitment from buyers. 

The primary trend appears uncertain, following the retreat back above 10000. The consolidation pattern continues.

Twiggs Money Flow has formed a double bottom below the signal line but does not yet signal accumulation.

The Nasdaq Composite also displays light volume on the latest rally.
The primary trend is headed downward.

Twiggs Money Flow (not shown) continues to signal distribution.

The S&P 500 again pulled back to test resistance at 1100. Light volume signals a lack of commitment from buyers.
A break above 1150, followed by confirmation of the breakout, would signal that the primary trend is headed upward.

Twiggs Money Flow continues to signal distribution.

NYSE Bullish Percent

The NYSE Bullish Percent Index rose slightly to 54.68% but the bear signal continues.

Treasury yields

The yield on 10-year treasury notes is consolidating just above 4.20%. 
Expect a re-test of support at 4.00%. 

The yield differential (10-year T-notes minus 13-week T-bills) is still healthy at 2.8%. 
Low differentials, of below 1.0%, are strong bear signals.


New York: Spot gold rallied to $412.90 and appears headed for a test of long-term resistance at $427.25.

ASX Australia

The All Ordinaries rallied back above 3500, continuing the consolidation pattern. Lower volume and a fairly weak close on Friday signal a lack of commitment from buyers. A reversal in the next day or two may still result in a test of support at 3450.

If support at 3450 holds, it would be a long-term bull signal.
A fall below 3350 would signal reversal of the primary trend.

Twiggs Money Flow continues to signal distribution.

Colin Twiggs

It is remarkable that in so many great wars it is the defeated who have won. The people who were left worst at the end of the war were generally the people who were left best at the end of the whole business. For instance, the Crusades ended in the defeat of the Christians. But they did not end in the decline of the Christians; they ended in the decline of the Saracens. That huge prophetic wave of Moslem power which had hung in the very heavens above the towns of Christendom: that wave was broken, and never came on again. The Crusades had saved Paris in the act of losing Jerusalem. The same applies to that epic of Republican war in the eighteenth century to which we Liberals owe our political creed. The French Revolution ended in defeat; the kings came back across a carpet of dead at Waterloo. The Revolution had lost its last battle, but it had gained its first object. It had cut a chasm. The world has never been the same since.

~ G K Chesterton (1912)
