5-day charts (1 bar = 5 minutes) with a 20-period SBV are showing flat negative SBV oscillator readings at session's end. Negative money flow on this chart would suggest the possibility of negative trading on Monday after the market open. 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: minus 36% on the S&P 500, minus 38% on the DJI, minus 41% on the NASDAQ 100 and minus 43% on the Russell 2000. Declining SBV readings are bearish and suggest the possibility of a down-move. We will continue to monitor this chart setting in order to determine at which point SBV oscillator readings start to advance; this might then suggest increased odds for a coming move to the upside.
1.5-year charts with a 10-period SBV are showing declining SBV Oscillator readings on the S&P 500 and on the DJI indexes, flat readings on the NASDAQ 100 index and a small decline in readings on the Russell 2000 index. Declining SBV readings are bearish. The negative SBV values seen on this chart are also bearish. This chart setting suggests a bearish longer-term market sentiment.
