Charts of Interest:
The SPX has retraced more than 50% of the triple top breakout on the 5x3 chart, a negative "High-Pole Warning."
Nasdaq 100 (NDX)
(Chart courtesy StockCharts.com)
The NDX had every technical justification for moving higher to at least downtrend resistance at 1625, but quickly retraced the entire counter-trend move following DeMark buy signals and has now violated all near-term support. The absence of new DeMark price completions and the initiation of a new buy countdown suggests this leg of the decline is not complete and the PnF preliminary downside count is well below 1500.
CELG recently broke a spread quadruple top.

But DeMark indicators have lined up here with sell signals registering on the monthly and weekly charts and nearing potential sell signals on the daily.
