Data Points

Tuesday we noted “darkest before the dawn?” and it appears that way right now as moving average continue to be retaken.

Bold means a change from prior day.

The adline/decline line saw NASDAQ put in a negative day which was a surprise to many.

The QPI10 Day Moving Average of Breadth (10DMA) is no longer invested  and moved to cash on May 8th close. For a move to cash from buy, the 10DMA needed to have two days in row below -200. For now, the best offense is a good defense. Ample notice of the current weakness was given.
