I scanned a couple hundred charts today, and the majority of the markets and their individual components all seem to be in a consolidating phase today, they were VERY few charts worth posting today showing important changes.
Breadth for the day closed at 1.64:1, on light volume, 946M, traded on the NYSE. A slight improvement over yesterday, but still extremely light volume considering that there are no holidays this week. Momentum is weak, but as we have seen in the recent past, the markets can still keep making new highs keeping the trend bullish. The markets are in desperate need of a correction, we are now closing in on 10 straight weeks with-out a decent sized correction, and the longer this drags out, the larger the next correction will likely be. The phrase "The Straw that Broke the Camel's Back" immediately comes to mind. If there are any interesting charts to post after Stockcharts gets their updates finished, I will surely post them.
The Trendfinder II is updated today, but there are no changes.
** The new web-site is up and running, including the updates. I still want to wait for at least a week before starting to switch to the new web-site as the primary site, just in case there are any bugs in the server or code that might cause problem. But you can start visiting the site now, or if you are a fellow blogger, changing links now is fine. The final move I need to make next week involves switching the feeds over for all those that subscribe to the E-mails, something you will not notice.
