5-day charts (1 bar = 5 minutes) with a 20-period SBV are showing advancing SBV oscillator readings at session's end. Positive money flow on this chart would suggest the possibility of positive trading tomorrow after the market open. 30-day charts (1 bar = 30 minutes) with a 13-period SBV are showing flat SBV, yet, SBV readings are at positive levels which would favor bulls as well.

The following SBV values were recorded at session's end: plus 62% on the S&P 500, plus 54% on the DJI, plus 28% on the NASDAQ 100 and plus 7% on the Russell 2000. Advancing SBV readings are bullish and suggest the possibility of a up-move. We will continue to monitor this chart setting in order to determine at which point SBV oscillator readings start to decline; this might then suggest increased odds for a coming move to the downside.
1.5-year charts with a 10-period SBV are showing declining SBV oscillator readings. 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.
