Central banks are flooding the markets with liquidity, causing stocks to rise despite week fundamentals. Large bearish divergences on 13-week Twiggs Money Flow for Dow Industrials and the Nasdaq 100 highlight the precarious nature of the current rally. But, as I said earlier, don't bet on this ending before the November election.

Dow Jones Industrial Average broke resistance at 12800, joining the Nasdaq 100 above its 2011 high. All four major indices display a primary up-trend, collectively signaling a bull market. Rising 13-week Twiggs Money Flow indicates medium-term buying pressure on the Dow and target for the initial advance is 13400*.

* Target calculations: 12300 + ( 12300 - 11200 ) = 13400

The S&P 500 is a little way behind, but rising 13-week Twiggs Money Flow indicates buying pressure. Breakout above 1370 is likely to confirm an advance to 1450*.

Dow Jones Transport Average is also in a primary up-trend; and headed for a test of resistance at 5600. New highs on 13-week Twiggs Money Flow indicate long-term buying pressure.

The truth is on the march and nothing will stop it.
