A-D LINE TURNS DOWN

 | 

LOWEST LEVEL IN MONTHS... It's been awhile since we've talked about the Advance-Decline lines in the various markets. The two charts below show why we're showing them now. The NYSE Advance-Decline line has fallen to the lowest level in four months. This is its weakest showing since the market rally started last March. The Nasdaq AD line looks even worse and has broken its 200-day moving average. That confirms that most of initial technical damage came from the Nasdaq. Trouble is it's now spreading to the rest of the market. All the more reason to be defensive at this point.
