Mr Market is trying to battle higher, but there is a lot of weakness out there. Certainly, even the bull maniacs who were crazy bullish at the Tuesday close, are now getting a bit twitchy. There remains significant chance of a close in the sp'1420s.
VIX, daily2, rainbow
Look at the MACD (blue bar histogram) cycle, we have possible third lower tower, despite the recent rise in prices.
Now, price action is of course more important than any indicator, but there is a growing weakness out there.
Until we break <1413 though, can't be confident of anything.
VIX is a touch lower, but I'd look for a close 17.75/18.00 Note that despite the current decline, VIX is still green on the rainbow chart. A close in the 18s..is viable.
*Mr $ is back to evens, equity bears really should be seeking USD 80> to close the year.
UPDATE 11.25am Gold approaching the target 158..however, SLV already broken the equivilent support.
There really isn't much support until the summer lows
Gold maniacs will be screaming 'cartal manipulation' for the rest of the week. ..sigh.
