Featured Breadth Chart of the Day:


Zweig is suffering in here, but that strong close on Friday brought the A/D lines back in line almost to 1:1.  The market is not ready to correct in a big way yet.


Comments and Levels for the Front ES (S&P500 – Emini futures) contract:

Short: 1690
Long:  1666


On the upside, we moved the price target down to 1590.  Look at that ATR climbing and climbing.  If the bulls can’t get it together on either a good piece of news or bearish exhaustion, that ATR should climb up and over the 3s.   Right now the battle is on and around the 1% pullback area.

So if downside momentum takes over today and 1672 cracks, we would expect to see 166 as the next test area down.   Breadth remains very strong, although we see signs of the market losing its appetite for risk as the Russell 2000 remains weak.


On The MiM & A new release:


Our snapshot on Friday was a bit schizophrenic as again it moved from negative to positive during the close and didn’t really develope a strong signal either side.  There were no shorting opportunities during the last hour as the market once again squeezed up 4+ points into the weekend close.

The week resets and we wait to see if we get any volume into today’s close.

We have released a slightly modified MiM meter starting today.  We have found that these symbol divergences are important for determining a signal so we will now capture and forward that data to the MiM readers.

First on the Status Line:


On the status line you will notice three numbers separated by a slash (/).  The first number is the number of symbols that we are receiving that have positive imbalances.  The second number is the sell symbol count, and the third number is the number of symbols we are receiving in total.

This is a real time picture update as the meter updates.

So for times like Friday where we saw an early sell side imbalance, the symbol imbalance was actually on the buy side.  There was a 124MM sell side imbalance on Friday for JPM and that thre off our data.

We are providing that data, too, as a snapshot:


So our snapshot table now will collect the following:

PCT – The % of the total dollar imbalance (sell imbalance)/(sell imbalance + buy imbalance) *100
Size – The size of the difference (buy imbalance – sell imbalance)
Sym % – The percentage of the symbols leaning one way or the other (# buy symbols) / (# buy symbos + #sell symbols) * 100
Sym# – Number of symbols presented with an imbalance
SPX – Value of the S&P 500 index

Please let us know if you have any issues with the new meter. It should help us out greatly in finding those symbol divergences and to judge the quality of the data we are receiving.

Comments about TLT (Twenty year Bond ETF):  


We like it to the upside still, and we are watching for 107.75 to hold and then a tackle at the 108.75 area.
