Momentum Gauge Dashboard

Daily Momentum Gauges continue positive but declining from the highest levels since last August. Strong similarities to the August market top continue to take shape as illustrated below. The negative early test signal has been active since Feb. 3rd with rising negative values and declines in the momentum gauge differences as the gauges move closer to an official negative signal. This usually precedes larger market downturns like we saw last year.
