It was bad day in the stock market, but the PMO Index didn't budge. So, it is too early to declare a new short-term downtrend. Besides, the market has been on a good run higher, and was probably ready for some selling. 

However, it isn't too early to be looking for signs of a new short-term downtrend with the PMO at the top of its range for quite a few days.
