Time To Prepare For The Next Short-Term Downtrend
The call/put indicator often changes its trend a few days in advance of the market's change of trend. This week, it started to show weakness after a consistent advance. This is a signal that it is time to prepare for the next short-term downtrend.
Market Uptrend Starting To Come Together
The major indexes have been out-of-sync and breakouts were not following through to the upside. However, Friday, June 4 was constructive for many stocks, so perhaps the general market uptrend is starting to come together for all the major indexes.
Overall Market Unable To Rally
The SPX and the NDX are indexes out of sync, and the overall market is unable to rally or sell off. With this kind of choppy, unpredictable behavior, the market could be base-building in order to provide us with the next rally. 
EC Signs Of A Fake-Out Rally?
Last week I said that a new short-term uptrend had started on May 7; that was a bad call. Yet, a week later on May 14, a new short-term uptrend started. In other words, watch for signs that this is another fake-out rally.
EC A New Uptrend Already?
A downtrend is definitely over when the SPX hits a new high in bullish fashion, as it did on Friday.
May Brings A New Short-Term Downtrend
I can't believe it's May already. I think we have a new short-term downtrend as of Friday, although I wouldn't be surprised to see more choppy, sideways market behavior. This has been a really tough market to follow.
