5-day charts (1 bar = 5 minutes) with a 20-period SBV are showing declining SBV oscillator readings at session's end. Negative money flow on this chart would suggest the possibility of negative trading tomorrow after the market open. 15-day charts (1 bar = 15 minutes) with a SBV(16) and 30-day charts (1 bar = 30 minutes) with a SBV(13) are showing negative money flow (declining SBV) as well. Overall, these charts are in favor of the bears.
60-day charts with a 20-period SBV are now showing declining SBV oscillator readings. The following SBV values were recorded at session's end: plus 8% on the S&P 500, 0% on the DJI, plus 24% on the NASDAQ 100 and plus 12% on the Russell 2000. Declining SBV readings are bearish and suggest the possibility of a down-move. At the same time, SBV values are still at positive levels; we may thus see side-ways and positive trading action prior to any decline. We will continue to monitor this chart setting in order to determine at which point SBV oscillator readings push to the zero-line; this might then suggest increased odds for a coming move to the downside.
1.5-year charts with a 10-period SBV are showing flat SBV oscillator readings. The negative SBV values seen on this chart are bearish. Overall, this chart reflects bearish longer-term market sentiment.
