Price closed today (Tuesday) at 154.53...failure to hold 150.00 could see a serious correction in equities and possible break of the critical 60.00 level, which has been threatened numerous times since mid-October 2014.
Momentum has been choppy and rising tentatively since mid-January of this year, but has yet to make a new all-time high. Price has definitely not made an all-time high on this ratio, and is not confirming the all-time high set on the SPX, as shown on the second Daily chart. As well, momentum on the SPX has also been choppy and rising tentatively since mid-January of this year, but has yet to make a new all-time high. These three observations tell me that, although the SPX remains in uptrend, it is rising in a choppy, tentative and fragile manner at current levels. Furthermore, the SPX will reach a major external Fibonacci level (161.8%) at 2138, where we may see some major profit-taking occur on rising volatility.
