US Equity Indices


The Russell 2000 Index remains in its correction off the high from the second half of February. Momentum, the 14-day RSI, can still unwind further. 

With the relative ratio, versus the large caps, resuming its medium-term downtrend, longs should be avoided.




US Sector Indices


The Health Care Providers ETF are fast heading fast towards their start of the year low. The relative ratio has already broken lower, now at a 52-week low. With momentum not being oversold, weakness is expected to continue.




Other Developed Indices


The Europe 350 Index ETF has pulled back with in its 2019 rising channel. The 14-day RSI is at neutral, ticking up. The up trend will need to resume from here to avoid breaking up trend support.





Emerging Indices


The Latin America 40 Index fund is retreating, likely towards $30, as that would equal the depth of similar pull-backs during the medium-term uptrend. 

An underperformer, versus the U.S. equity market, since the start of the year.







 The Euro Trust maintains a yearlong downtrend. New 52-week lows imminent. The 14-day RSI is not oversold. 





The Gold fund remains in its 2019 sideways consolidation. Momentum is flat, in line with a sideways market. Watching for an uptrend resssertion eventually.






The 7-10 year T-Bond fund is making new 52-week highs this week and momentum is not overbought. 

The 5 year chart of the IEF shows a break of the downtrend off the 2016 high. New medium-term uptrend is establishing.
