The percentage of Stocks in a Bullish Upswing for all Categories are
83% of the Dow Jones is on an Upswing
78% of the S&P 100 is on an Upswing
94% of the Nasdaq 100 is on an Upswing
82% of all Three Indexes Top Holdings is on an Upswing
All Three Categories have had a Very Bullish Swing Signal for Three Days Now, which is showing some strength.
The Nasdaq 100 is Extremely Bullish at 94%, it is starting to get to a level where pullbacks have occurred. I'm a little concerned about this because the Nasdaq is forming a Breaish Divergence with our Market Breath Indicator. This Bearish Divergence usually forms when the Index is about to TOP and PULL BACK. We must be careful
The bottom line is that the market is at a critical point in time and at a critical level on the Charts.
The Chart Structure for the S&P 500 and the SPY is showing a break above the Key Overhead Resistance can it hold and find support above these levels is what we must look for?
A picture is worth a Thousand Words
In our opinion below are the MOST IMPORTANT CHARTS IN THE STOCK MARKET at this TIME
