Another Sequence of Hindenburg Omens

The first 5 trading days of August witnessed another four Hindenbug Omens. We have used Bob McHugh's definition of the Omen and also his filters as described in http://www.safehaven.com/article/30019/we-got-an-official-confirmed-hindenburg-omen-on-may-31st-2013.

I don't keep track of the Omen as you'll usually find a safehaven.com contributor posting a missive when it occurs. No one mentioned the occurances last week; I thought the week's trading action unusual, and decided to have a look at the data.

Bob's ctiteria for a confirmed Hindenburg Omen is two instances of the following, happening within a 36-day period:

  1. Number of New Highs and New Lows on the NYSE exceeds 2.2% of the issues traded;
  2. New 52 Week NYSE Highs cannot be more than twice New 52 Week Lows;
  3. NYSE 10 Week Moving Average is rising;
  4. McClellan Oscillator is negative.

August 7 did not qualify as the number of new highs was eight issues shy of the required 2.2% of total issues traded.

You can keep track of the data at the following links:

NYSE Issues Traded: http://wsj.com/mdc/public/page/2_3021-tradingdiary.html
NYSE McClellan Oscillator and NYSE 10-Week Moving Average: http://stockcharts.com/ Symbol: $NYMO, $NYSE

The market is continuing to work out a large megaphone pattern.

Is the pattern complete? I don't know. I do know that Hindenburg Omens will likely signal the completion of the pattern. Is this the time? Could be!
