  • "The deteriorating momentum picture for the S&P Diversified Bank Index concerns us first and foremost, but we're also concerned because the momentum indicator peaked from a similar level in 1998, deteriorated until its low in 2000, but price action for the index was, at the very least, unimpressive through early 2003. On a weekly basis, the index is putting in a "lower high" with respect to the action that occurred from November '04- February '05. Furthermore, the weekly momentum indicator for this is also fading. Lastly, relative price action for the S&P Diversified Bank index, which has made no net progress in the last three years, recently made a new lower low to go along with its series of lower highs. Additionally, it is below its downward sloping 200-day moving average." - Uber-Minyan John Roque of Natexis Bleichroeder
