Over the weekend, Carl determined to place collectively the chart beneath. We regularly make comparisons between the SPY and its equal-weight sibling, RSP. By figuring out divergences between the 2 ETFs, we are able to see whether or not the mega-cap shares are main the cost or whether or not a rally is supported by the remainder of the index.
At present we have now rising tops on the SPY, however declining tops on RSP. This alone tells us that market participation is much from broad. The Apples of the world are main the index. And, at this level, these Apples of the world are barely holding the market collectively proper now because the SPY is trying very toppy.
Now let’s add the Silver Cross Index (SCI) which in and of itself is equally weighted. Every inventory is checked out to see whether or not it has a “Silver Cross” or not. A Silver Cross is a 20-day EMA shifting above the 50-day EMA. Usually these shares are intermediate-term bullish.
Discover on the earlier value high in February, the SCI was studying at about 80%. On this larger value high, solely about 55% have been on Silver Crosses. That is roughly a 30% lower within the studying and units up an enormous damaging divergence. RSP is confirming the issue because it has a a lot decrease April value high.
Conclusion: Our query is how is the SPX going to start out one other bull leg when the rally is not broad? If the Apples of the world slip, there isn’t any one there to choose up the slack. At this level, we see this as an ominous arrange that can doubtless result in a extreme decline.
