    "This is deflation in action: falling prices that are, in effect, a transfer of wealth from landlords, goods producers and retailers to consumers."
    Tom Petruno 


    INDEX VIEW


    A few changes in the picture: we are definitely NOT at a top; or, if we are at a top, we're not falling yet. The readings need to be showing a lot more deterioration for us to think the rally is ending.  DJI's short-term trend is now positive.  DJI is now 'long' according to our M4 Sum Plus indicator.  The market probably could crash without notice -- but I don't think it ever has before.  Markets deteriorate; and then crash.


    KEY: 'TRADE" = current position using M4 Sum Plus Trade System.  "TREND" = short-term trend DIRECTION: above 0 is positive; below 0 is negative.  "M4 +" = issues with at least 2 consecutive days of positive M4 Sum Plus will register a 1.  'M4 -" = issues with at least 2 consecutive days of negative M4 Sum Plus will register a 1M4 Sum Plus is a VERY short-term momentum indicator.  "INT MOM" = M5 Average Sum Plus, which is an intermediate-term momentum indicator: 1 is positive; -1 is negative.  "LTERM MOM" = MA 40 Sum Plus, which is a long-term momentum indicator: +1 is positive; -1 is negative.
