Maybe because I have been slightly bearish over the last several weeks I have been looking for signals that were are at a top in the market. Many people read many different things into that idea but few have indicators that will give them a clue as to if they are correct or not.
While I am not a fan of the Hindenburg Pattern or the Cup and Handle or the Black Swan chart patterns I do follow a few technical indicators. Mine are not so much about a head and shoulders or lines as much as they are indicators of froth.
I look at New Highs vs New Lows... and lately there has been a lot to look at there. Friday was a big time indicator of froth... new highs were 1288 vs 101 new lows. Usually a big difference in the two would be 300-500 (suggesting a normal high count of 400 new highs and 100 new lows).
Here is a look at the daily chart for New Highs vs New Lows :
When we step back into a weekly look at the chart, this is what we see:
I also look at another indicator... but I will save that for another RTI.
So my question is what indicators do you look at and does the New Highs vs New Lows indicate any froth to you?
