Yesterday saw 1435 stocks rise and 1438 fall on the NYSE. NASDAQ saw 1562 rise and 1489 fall. A mixed day despite the indexes being higher.
The SP 500 is still above its 50 and 200 day simple moving average. The Russell 2000 is also above its 50 day simple moving average and now above its 200 day simple moving average. The Dow is also above its 50 and 200 day simple moving average. All three indexes are now above their 5, 10 and 20 day moving averages.
The QPI10 Day Moving Average of Breadth (10DMA) moved to buy on January 7th at 2549.69. For a move to a buy from cash, the 10DMA needed to have two days in row above +200 which happened January 7th. The next move will be to cash or sell which right now seems a long ways off but a couple more days like Thursday may cause a signal change.
