The widely-watched S&P support at 1040 was broken on Tuesday as declines led advances by a seven-to-one margin. The confirmation of the April highs by the A/D line and bullish signals at the June lows have kept us positive. The A/D line is now close to key support and its intermediate-term uptrend. A violation of both would clearly weaken the technical outlook. The Transports have been a leading sector and are now testing the uptrend. The OBV, which identified the rally from the February lows, is stronger than prices.
