GMI back to 2; On the sidelines, in cash


The GMI declined to 2 (of 6) and the GMI-R to 4 (of 10).   We are at a point in time when the daily moving averages are flat and the major indexes whipsaw us as they close above and below the averages.       I am concerned when the leaders like AAPL, GOOG and NFLX are weak and unable to reach new highs. The leaders of the prior bull move often weaken and decline before the rest of the market. On the other hand, the Investors Intelligence polls show about as many newsletters are bearish as bullish, a rare occurrence and a contrary, bullish sign.

It is much easier to be in the market when there is a clear general market trend.   This is a good time to be on the sidelines safely in cash.
