By Lawrence G. McMillan

The market continues to rise, mostly in a very slow-motion fashion. Meanwhile, overbought conditions are building.  $SPX has bumped up against the 1330 level for three days in six, without being able to break through.  I would not expect any correction to violate that bullish trend line, but if it should happen, it would be a major negative factor.

Equity-only put-call ratios remain split.  The standard ratio remains on the sell signal that was generated last week.  But the weighted ratio remains on a buy signal.

Breadth remains on buy signals and is in overbought territory.

Volatility indices ($VIX and $VXO) have remained bullish for stocks, as they continue to decline. 

In general, rallies should be sold until this overbought condition is alleviated.
