The Dow Industrial Average broke through support at 10300 and we are likely to see another test of the 10000 support level. The overall pattern is one of consolidation around the 10000 support level: marginally lower highs at [c] and [e]; marginally lower low at [d]. This pattern can break out in either direction. Obviously, in an up-trend, an upward breakout is more likely but a possible reversal cannot be ignored. We may witness further marginal highs or lows and direction will only be clear when we have a breakout followed by confirmation, with a pull-back that respects the upper or lower border of the pattern.
Twiggs Money Flow is drifting lower.
The Nasdaq Composite displays a similar consolidation pattern to the Dow, with a consolidation between 1900 and 2000.
Twiggs Money Flow is drifting sideways.
The same pattern also appears on the S&P 500. Breakouts will need confirmation before they can be relied upon.
Twiggs Money Flow continues to signal distribution.
The point & figure chart shows the consolidation more clearly, with resistance at 1150 and support at 1080.
The NYSE Bullish Percent Index rose to 66.22%: making a weak Bull Confirmed signal.
The yield on 10-year treasury notes is testing support, with a close on Friday below 4.50%. The Fed raised interest rates by a quarter percent as expected but undid the effect, to some extent, by uttering soothing words about increases at a measured pace. The yield differential (10-year T-notes minus 13-week T-bills) is still a healthy 3.2%.
New York: Spot gold closed up at $398.20. The metal has encountered resistance at the 400.00 level. The intermediate up-trend will require further confirmation, with a rise above Monday's high of 404.25.

ASX AustraliaThe recent retracement on the All Ordinaries encountered support above 3500; a bullish sign. An up-trend where troughs and preceding peaks do not overlap signals that buyers are dominant, with sellers unable to drive the index below the first line of support at the previous high (in this case at 3500). The reaction on Friday is also encouraging, with a weak close and strong volume signaling buying support.
The primary up-trend continues; though readers should bear in mind that we may still see a secondary correction later test support at 3450. Twiggs Money Flow continues to signal strong accumulation.
