GMI: +4; GMI-S: 25; lightening up on longs

The GMI is at +4.  While there were more than 100 new highs in my universe of 4,000 stocks, there were few successful 10 day new highs (stocks that hit a new high ten days ago and closed higher on the Monday than they did ten days earlier).  Failed new highs are a warning sign of a weak market.  Gmi0417 Only 22% of the Nasdaq 100 stocks rose, along with 35% of the S&P 500 stocks and 17% of the Dow 30 stocks.  Only 30% of stocks are in a short term up trend, the lowest since March 10.  Only 49% of stocks closed above their 10 week averages.  The GMI-S fell to 25, indicating considerable weakness in my short term market indicators.  None of the four short term indicators for the DIA are positive.  Monday was the fourteenth day (U-14) in the current short term up trend in the QQQQ…….

I am starting to lighten up on my longs.  A few more days down will turn my indicators decidedly negative.
