Friday in Context: Not Really So Bad

by Carl Swenlin

The Brexit vote was a solid win for "Leave," even though the margin wasn't huge. The resulting market correction was not really so bad for U.S. markets; although, for global markets it was another story... Read More

Buying Exhaustion Likely

by Erin Swenlin

Today's rally was impressive after three days of consolidation, but indicators suggest it won't last. Below I've annotated ultra-short-term and short-term indicator charts for the S&P 500. See if you agree with my conclusion... Read More

Market Condition Ahead of You-Know-What

by Carl Swenlin

The reason for the cryptic title is that I bet Erin that I could write an article without using the word "Brexit." Doh! Whatever. The big event next week (Thursday) is the British vote to leave or remain in the European Union. As to what the U.S... Read More

PMO SELL Signal Triggers on S&P 600 ($SML)

We saw on Tuesday four new Price Momentum Oscillator (PMO) SELL signals on the DecisionPoint Scoreboards which I wrote about in Tuesday's article. It isn't surprising to see Small Caps share a similar fate. I've annotated the new PMO SELL signal on the daily chart below... Read More

TLT Hits New All-Time High - More to Come?

by Erin Swenlin

Yesterday it appeared that TLT had formed a reverse island formation. However, with the Price Momentum Oscillator (PMO) on a BUY signal, the SCTR with a healthy 75+ reading and an OBV line trending higher, I knew it wasn't a good fit. I suggested it might be a breakaway gap... Read More

SPY: Still Wary of the Advance

by Carl Swenlin

While our timing models remain bullish, and the market continues to make marginal new highs, I have been looking for a bull market top since the monthly PMO topped in late 2014 and then crossed down through its signal line in early-2015... Read More

Gold Holds Support but Triggers an Intermediate-Term Trend Model Neutral Signal

by Erin Swenlin

Today's signal change probably isn't too surprising given the pesky correction that has been plaguing Gold. The question is whether it has arrived late to the party given that price seems to have found short-term support at the October 2015 high... Read More
