Chart 3

Market Breadth: NEAR TO INTERMEDIATE TERM BEARISH. Through Friday most measures of near term (monthly) market breadth are either at frothy extremes that have historically coincided with or led one to several month US stock market declines, or are showing a negative divergence which means that new index highs are being made on a decreasing number of rising constituent stocks.

The red highlights in Chart 3 above show that the 10-day moving average of new highs minus new lows in the NASDAQ 100 (blue line, lower panel) has reached an historic frothy extreme that has previously coincided with most every near term peak in NDX since 2011.
