Since the late-April highs, many analysts have turned negative on the intermediate trend, and while they may be right, the charts of the S&P 400 and S&P 600 suggest that we have just seen a normal correction. They were strong on Thursday after testing the rising 200-day MAs on Tuesday before reversing to close strong. Both continue to be stronger than the S&P 500 as the RS on both is back above its WMA and their uptrends. A move above the May 13 highs should signal new highs ahead.
