Though Wednesday’s rebound was positive, the Advance/Decline (A/D) ratios for both the NYSE and Nasdaq were negative. Even though the market has continued to edge higher, the McClellan Oscillator, a short-term A/D indicator, has continued to decline. It is below the zero line and a drop below the -100 level would be even more negative. The NYSE has good support now at 7200 with first strong support in the S&P 500 at 1150. The Summation Index has also flattened out and a drop below its weighted moving average (WMA) would be consistent with a correction.
