Flash Alert: Market Breadth is No Longer Bullish

 | 

Unless things reverse, the New York Stock Exchange Advance Decline line (NYAD) has given a sell signal, as it has fallen below its 50-day moving average and below the 50 area on its RSI simultaneously. That is a Duarte 50-50 sell signal.

As a result, until this technical development is remedied, the odds of a lasting rally in stocks will be limited and caution is warranted. Nevertheless, it should be noted that this group of indicators could reverse rapidly; they certainly have done so repeatedly over the last few months. Still, the intensity and speed with which this particular signal has developed should be taken seriously.

The S&P 500 (SPX) and the Nasdaq 100 (NDX) are also showing weakness, with both indexes testing key short-term support.

The next few days are likely to be crucial. Stay tuned.
