    Technical Stock Market Timing System

    On Friday the S&P 500 chart has formed a Bearish Thrusting Candlestick pattern. This pattern occurs in a downtrend and it shows a rally failure in a down market. This is a continuation pattern.

    More than 10% of S&P 500 members have an Uptrend Support alert. 74 of S&P 500 index members made a new 52-week high, while almost half of them (36) closed this week below the previous week's close. This event is called a "buying climax".

    The S&P 500 members' weekly MACD bearish/bullish divergence ratio is 71/5. It means that 14 times more S&P 500 members have weekly MACD bearish divergence than the bullish divergence. The weekly Lane's stochastic bearish/bullish divergence ratio is 105/2.
