Red Flag From the Stalling Number of New Highs?

In the past few weeks, we have been pointing out that the daily New Highs on the New York Stock exchange were not behaving in a fashion that suggested a healthy rise in the market. We commented that healthy rallies had buyers chasing stocks and bidding them up higher ... which in turn pushed the number of stocks reaching New Highs up higher in a trending fashion.

Last week, we showed the chart below and commented that: "There was NO up trend going on which was a red flag to be concerned about."

Today, we will post another chart on the New Highs which is our "New Highs Trending Indicator". Please scroll below to see this chart and the commentary ...

New Highs

New Highs Trending Indicator ...

*** Our New Highs Trender Indicator closed at 158 yesterday, which was 22 points below our important 180 level.

What is important on this chart, is what has been going on with the indicator since August: It is currently lower than the peak at the beginning of August, while the SPY is conversely higher than the beginning of August. Therefore, this indicator is showing a negative divergence ... see the green lines.

Conclusion: The negative divergence says that the market's health may be in jeopardy. Friday's employment report will be very important, but in the meantime, this model is saying that the market is less confident than many investors think it is.

Indicator Explanation: The New Highs model below is pretty self explanatory. The up moves on the SPY correlate with New Highs being above 180 on this model ... the 180 level is a horizontal blue line. *** When the New Highs Fast Indicator turns to the downside, the SPY falls as seen by the vertical red lines. * This Indicator is posted every day on our paid subscriber site and is presented as a courtesy to our Free Members today.
