A-D Line Divergence Again

weekly Chart In Focus

The Fed is still pumping liquidity into the banking system, albeit at diminished rates, and the large cap indices are still showing no signs of trouble, with the DJIA making higher highs and higher lows.

weekly Chart In Focus

The Nasdaq 100 Index is making new multi-year highs, levels not seen since the weeks just after the 2000 Internet Bubble top.  But it is interesting for us to see that the average component stock in that index is down 7% from its trailing 52-week high. 

And that 7% drawdown number is actually smaller than it has been recently, but it is still not back to the low drawdown reading of 6.0% that we saw in early March, before the Nasdaq 100 stocks got into a patch of trouble.  And the... Read More
