SPY Trading Analysis
RSI- presently surfing at about 37.60 the SPY continues to form a straight line while it tried to keep itself out of the bottom of the over sold arena. It has hit a peak and now is trying not to go back down again. Its hard we shall see what it does-- but it has a straight line base we will watch and see if it holds.
Bollinger Bands- just as we suspected (and did not wish to see) if you are bullish is the SPY bouncing off the middle band. This does nothing but strengthen the bearish case for the stock. But it does look like a base may have formed. We will see next week.
MACD- ha ha from every indication, it looks like the SPY has flat-lined. looks like the MACD has declared it dead. A nice metaphor considering its performance.

The jobless rate in the 17-nation euro zone reached 11 percent in March and April, the highest since the start of the data in 1995, Eurostat, the European statistical agency said in Luxembourg. The previous record had been 10.9 percent in February, Eurostat said, after it revised March's figure upward from the 10.9 percent initially estimated.
"We have an economy that's freezing up, it's clearly not creating jobs," Peter Dixon, global equities economist at Commerzbank in London, said. "But right now policy makers' main concern is to ensure that the peripheral countries' governments and banks can stay afloat. Given that, the real economic data is taking a back seat."
