Chart of the day:

The UK's FTSE 100 ended last week higher by 5.6% for 2016. The week itself saw consolidation, allowing momentum to cool off. The 14-day RSI has room to allow further short-term strength. Note the 50-day exponential moving average rising through the 200-day last week, a bullish golden-cross.


Daily Comment:

The U.S. S&P 600 Small Cap Index rallied 2.4% Friday, lifting its 2016 gain to 7.5%. The index remains short of the 2016 high and the record high of 742 from 2015. Both those levels will present resistance and with the P&F relative chart versus the large caps holding its reversal down from June, caution is still advised on the small caps.

Breadth, the Bullish % for the small cap index, also maintains downward direction, with a confirmed top for April through June. Therefore internals are yet to confirm the short-term strength on the index.




In the U.K., the small caps are also underperforming the large caps. The relative ratio for the FTSE SmallCap Index versus the FTSE 100 is trading around 52-week lows, reflecting underperformance. The index itself is struggling to overcome resistance from its 200-day exponential moving average.
