Steady but Indecisive June 24, 2017

June 23, 2017 – OK, the trend remains positive / Bullish but if you look at the recent rally, it was pretty tepid at best.  I point out the “Volume Flow” indicator below which rather well points out the lack of enthusisium in this recovery off a minor bottom.


Yes, the support levels (first at 6164) and trend lines are hanging in there and we may just be seeing the infamous “Summer Doldrums” setting.  My feeling is that we’re going to be in a consolidation phase until the Fall, but that’s just a hunch.

Editorial: I’ve updated to the latest version of MetaStock, so this chart looks a little different, plus I’ve added my bar strength indicator to the color of each daily bar.  This should provide a little more “heads up” information in the future.

From the pie charts below of the stock components of the S&P 1500 Index we note a healthy but yet “OK” market in the longer term.

Price Strength –

SP 1500 Price Strength

Accumulation / Distribution –

SP 1500 A-D

Overall things are looking OK even though the previous mass buying surge that we have seen after the November election has subsided.  What has appeared over the last week to 10 days is a rolling over of key sectors.


The Tech, Semiconductor, Software strength remains, though lessened.  It has been supplanted by Biotech and Healthcare (note above table of current sector strength).

Where we are now is a generally supportive market, but leadership may be changing and actually narrowing.  I remain watchful of an Up Thrust bar on heavy volume as a near term warning sign of weakness.  But for now we have to “go with the flow” (i.e. trend).

Have a good week and we rolling into summer at full strength.   ….  Tom  ….
