The 10-day Trin is retreating from the 1.35 oversold reading last week and has plenty of gas in the tank before becoming overbought by moving to 0.85 or lower.

The SOX was top gun on the day, leading all major sectors with an advance of 1.5%. Price is pivoting off the completed 9 bar buy setup. The near term level for consideration is t he static trend line at 448.

The BTK rebounded and moved to the middle of the recent trading range.

The OSX was higher but slightly weaker than the broad market even with much higher energy prices on the day. Price has cleared the recent lateral trading range with a 279 trade to target (50dma).

The BKX closed back above the 200dma but the meaningful move is a close over the 50dma and the active DTL.

The XAU has been in a strong bounce since recently printing new YTD lows. The upward impulse has completed 9 day. This implies that price is likely to either consolidate and trade sideways or retrace.
