Point & Go Figure: QQQQ, PHLX Housing Sector Index
Bot the NYSE and Nasdaq Percent Above 50-day Moving Average Indicators are in Os, having formed lower highs since April, with the Nasdaq preparing for a triangle break. Meanwhile, the High-Low Indices for the NYSE and Nasdaq remain in Xs.
The longer-term bullish percents for the NYSE and Nasdaq Composite are both still in Xs, but continuing to deteriorate, yesterday showing more new sell signals than buy signals despite a generally positive day on the surface for the major averages. The larger pattern of lower highs also remains intact, a significant bearish divergence, but a longer-term one.
The more narrow S&P 500 and Nasdaq-100 Bullish Percents both are negative, each in a column of Os and the NDX gave a new sell signal last week by exceeding a previous low.
