The Standard & Poors 500 Index ($SPX)) broke down below the important support level of 1670-1680 today and, in doing so, unleashed a torrent of sell signals. The picture has changed to intermediate-term negative.
The equity-only put-call ratios are split. The weighted ratio made new lows recently, trading at its lowest prices in over a year. Then it curled up,
in a sell signal. The standard ratio remains on a buy. Market breadth has been poor, with both breadth indicators recently having moved to sell signals.
Volatility indices ($VIX and $VXO) had been holding below 14 until $VIX blasted up through that level, staging an upside breakout of sorts. That is bearish for stocks, as well.
In summary, the situation is now intermediate-term bearish with most
indicators having moved to sell signals.
