as the market continued to climb to new highs, if you look at the chart below you’ll notice that it did not move to new lows. no, in fact it has been basing since Feb .. almost 6 months. in a truly bullish environment, it would be game on and this ratio would continue lower. it did not …
in fact, it appears to have some strength and starting a breakout to the upside.
THAT, is not a bullish equity move … so, keep you powder dry. if you have been following my blog for a while you know how powerful this ratio (XLP/NYA) has been at warning about inflection points … yes, we have lower targets from the last post, but, for now, certainly appears that the ratio is/has bottomed and a “risk off” mindset appears to be taking hold ..
one last, I went in and fiddled w/ my settings and everything and can’t figure out why all the candles are green? maybe it’s that I’m using a “ratio” but I’m not sure, so I do apologize for any confusion. for whatever reason 4 candles are red …?
make it a good week.
