Weekly Commentary 6/3/2011

By Lawrence G. McMillan

Currently, the dominant theme of the $SPX chart is its downtrend.  There is now resistance at 1330, and above that, at 1345.

The equity-only put-call ratios have steadfastly remained bearish since rolling over to sell signals in mid-to-late April.  As long as they are rising, that is bearish for stocks.

At the current time, breadth indicators are on sell signals.

$VIX is still in the process of rising off of its recent lows.  If it closes above 19, that would be negative.

In summary, the big picture is that the market is still in an intermediate-term downtrend.

Trading or investing whether on margin or otherwise carries a high level of risk, and may not be suitable for all persons. Leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to trade or invest you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and ability to tolerate risk. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment or even more than your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and investing, and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.
