From a structural and fundamental point-of-view, things are bearish right now; however, the technical and sentiment action surrounding recent price gains is quite constructive; thus a larger rally appears underway. We are bullish but only insofar as the 65-week moving average of the S&P 500 holds at the 1145 level on a closing basis. If the 1164 level is broached, then this will be the first sign a larger breakdown is underway, and hence will put us into an initial short position; with a break of 1145 consider an 'all out bear market' calling for an overweight short position.

This is our simple roadmap stay long until our 'pivot points' are hit, and then act with impunity. For once the 65-week moving average is violatedthen the decline should be swift and heart wrenching.
