We saw very weak action in all of the major US stock markets last week even though the market stabilized on Friday. The weekly and daily momentum both point lower and a violation of the July 20 lows will indicate a test of the key support at the July lows. The NYSE A/D line has also turned lower, but is acting much stronger than prices as it is still above its 34 EMA. It has a good long-term record and a false bullish signal would be rare, which makes the next few weeks important.
