Bellwether transport stock Fedex fell hard in the last week, testing support at $84. Breakout would confirm the primary down-trend signaled by 63-day Twiggs Momentum below zero. A down-trend on Fedex would warn of slowing activity in the broader economy.


A daily chart of the S&P 500 index shows narrow consolidation above 1450. Bearish divergence on 21-day Twiggs Money Flow continues to warn of selling pressure. Reversal below 1450 would indicate a test of 1400.
