Long term, upside bias remains intact for all three major indices. We have seen the failed breakout last week in the DJIA, lead to a deterioration of the short term technicals.

Not much in economic reports this week, but there will be some attention to Europe. Early Futures are lower versus fair value, indicating some weakness at the open.

downside. RSI's moved down to the low 40's and ROC(10's) declined. The averages dropped below their short term moving averages and MACD's are below for the Nasdaq100 and S&P. The month long sideways trade has left moving averages to converge and other technicals indicators to narrow. A failed breakout in the DJIA, and the inability for the S&P and Nasdaq100 to confirm, may have been a failed fifth wave. We may continue an extended fourth wave of consolidation. Critical support levels for the S&P will be the recent low of 1358 and 1340.
