NYSE Breadth Thrust = 42.6 (40 is considered as oversold and 65 as overbought)

By Monday of last week, SPX put in an outside bar reversal on the WEEKLY chart. ioho, this is huge.

200-Day MA RUT = 1585 or 4% ABOVE RUT (max observed in last 7 yrs = 21.3%, min = -22.6%)

DJ Transportation Index (proxy for economic conditions 6 to 9 months hence) sold off pretty hard till mid-day Friday.

Russell 2000 Small Caps Index (proxy for Risk ON/OFF) puked on Wednesday and continued to sell into mid-day Friday. RISK is still ON.

HA_SP1_Momo Chart

WEEKLY Timing Model = on a BUY Signal since Friday, March 8, 2019 CLOSE at 2743
DAILY Timing Model = on a SELL Signal since Wednesday, March 6, 2019 CLOSE at 2771
Max SPX 52wk-highs reading last week = 42 (over 120-140, the local maxima is in)
Max SPX 52wk-Lows reading last week = 6 (over 40-60, the local minima is in)
HA_SP1 closed near its -1 sigma channels
HA_Momo = -9.37 (reversals most likely occur above +10 or below -10)

Vol of the Vols Chart

Spot VIX currently stands at 16.05, at about its +1 sigma (remember it's the VIX volatility pattern aka "its sigma channels" that matters, and not the level of VIX itself (this is per Dr. Robert Whaley, a great mentor and inventor of original VIX, now called VXO). VIX usually peaks around a test of its +4 sigma).

VIX rallied all week and reached +4 sigma by mid-day Friday and then reversed 3 sigma levels !!

5-day TRIN & TRINQ Charts

NYSE 5-day TRIN is nearing a BUY zone while 5-day TRIN is nearing a SELL zone. Be careful out there.

Components of SPX above their respective 200day MA Chart

This scoring indicator rallied hard to 54% after failing earlier in the week at 65-ish. While we continue to keep an eyes on its dual MAs at 20 & 50 Days, if this indicator does not fall below 50% soon, then the downside momo shall be in serious doubt.

SPX SKEW (Tail Risk) Chart

On Friday, SPX SKEW (Tail Risk) closed near 125.7, now about its zero sigma (normal = 120-125, range 100-150).

All quiet on the Eastern & Mid-Western Fronts, again? YES, this is according to our beloved HRH Capt Tiko, KCPE....

3-month VIX Futures Spread(VX) Chart

This popular timing indicator, (now long MAR19, & short JUN19 VIX Futures) crossed the zero line on Friday and closed at -0.6 which says we **may** have seen the SPX low.

HA_SP2 Chart

HA_SP2 = 20.9 (Buy signal <= 25, Sell Signal >= 75)

Our coveted SP2 prop indicator is in OVERSOLD zone now.

US Treasury T-Notes & T-Bonds Yields Chart

The front end of the Curve jumped on Wednesday and then went sideways while the intermediate to long end of the Curve sold off hard (notes & bonds rallied). Maury is upset again. oh boy.
