VIX at an extreme level, but it can stay that way for quite a while.

SP500 technically still in an intermediate up trend. The accelerated volume on today's sell off indicates traders are getting nervous at this level.



DOW also still in an intermediate up trend. It has been consolidating just below the multi-year high. Again the accelerating volume is a concern.




DOW transport still neutral. The DOW can not make a new high without the DOW transport making a new high.



COMPQ still in an intermediate uptrend. We have had 4 up days so today's sell off was to be expect. It should pull back and consolidate for the next 2 to 3 days.



Financials still consolidating at this level. Big volume today is a real concern and may indicate a downside resolution.




Gold technically fell back into the down trend channel and is back to a sell signal. It needs to reverse back up in the next 2 days or something serious has changed in the trend.

We will see how the trading goes over the next few days for gold, but the fact that it did not at least re-bound to test the gap from yesterday indicates traders are very cautious right now. If the trading stays in the down trending channel the psychology of traders will have gone bearish and that will take time to repair.



Even the depth of the selloff yesterday indicates a lot of gold traders are running with tight stop loss, that is not an indication of a bullish mentaility.

Interesting chart with an ascending triangle. Too bad it has gone beyond the 2/3 point of the triangle otherwise I would have expect a strong break out to the upside.



Recent upgrade with a $35 price target so there is not a lot of upside as these targets often become self fullfilling.

JC:

I read a Forbes article where Nike has really switched the way it advertises. Not just print but TV as well. So much more going to the net.

SP500 in a very tight range the last few days. It appears to be waiting for some event. Employment numbers are tomorrow, though I don't believe it will be a significant catalyst.




Same comment on the DOW.



Still neutral on the DOW transports.



New high on the COMPQ on above average volume. This is a positive for the continuation of the intermediate term uptrend.



Technically the financials are breaking out the consolidatiion pattern. A resistance level is just above this level though. I would wait for it to clear the next 2 resistance levels as these levels are not very far from this level.



Oil sector seeing some resistance as it approach this 52 week high level.



Gold has to recover by early next week or it will have confirmed the fall back into the down trend channel which would confirm the sell signal which was generate today.

That is interesting but I know for me that when I click on a youtube video and an ad comes up.. I focus almost entirely on the click 'now to skip' button :O) I find net advertising even more annoying that television ads.. but likely in part due to the fact that we have mostly been free of it until the last few years.. I have Facebook (thx to my mom :o( for sharing pictures... I have never clicked on any ad to the right of he main area.. and do not plan on doing so...

Oil company shares drop relative to the increase in oil prices. Gold miners falling relative to the price of gold.

The disconnect is concerning. It is interesting that the same effect is current not being seen on US oil stocks. They have had quite a run over the last few weeks.
