Stock Index Tracking

Current through 3/30 close. The NASDAQ 100 fell below its 20 day moving average.

Bold means a change from prior day.

The advance/decline line model remains in cash. Updated through 3/30 close. In 2019, the model was up 16.48% on the S&P 500 and this year is down -7.64% with the S&P 500 lower by -21.34% through Friday. 5 buy signals and 4 cash signals in 2019. We moved to cash at 3116.31 on the S&P 500 and Friday’s action keeps us in cash. We still need two days in a row above +200 and that could happen today.
