The NYSE Composite and S&P 500 closed above their 200-day moving averages (MAs) for the second day in a row. Last week, I noted that the NYSE A/D line was forecasting higher prices. Some other measures of the market’s internal health also look good. The McClellan Oscillator, a short-term advance/decline indicator, has moved well above the zero line but is still below overbought levels. It suggests the rally can go further. The Summation Index is an intermediate-term indicator that has risen above its 21-period weighted moving average (WMA), and it would take several days of very weak numbers to reverse.
