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 on Monday after the market open. 15-day charts (1 bar = 15 minutes) with a SBV(16) are showing negative money flow (declining SBV) as well, thus confirming 5-day chart's outlook. 30-day charts (1 bar = 30 minutes) with a 13-period SBV are showing declining SBV, however, SBV readings are at positive levels on these charts by suggesting that, even if we see negative trading at the market open, it could be short-lived unless we see stronger SBV decline on the 30-day charts.
60-day charts with a 20-period SBV are now showing flat SBV Oscillator readings on the S&P 500 and on the DJI indexes, advancing readings on the NASDAQ 100 index and advancing readings on the Russell 2000 index. The following SBV values were recorded at session's end: plus 57% on the S&P 500, plus 38% on the DJI, plus 38% on the NASDAQ 100 and plus 34% on the Russell 2000. Flat SBV readings suggest possibility of changes in trend, however, SBV readings are at high positive levels. Furthermore the odds are on the bullish side. 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 flat SBV oscillator readings. The negative SBV values seen on this chart are bearish. Overall, despite recent weak recovery, this chart still reflects weak longer-term market sentiment.
