  • Shiller's Adjusted S&P P/E ratio is now at 31.23 Off highs, but still arguably at the highest level in history (if we adjust for 2000 distortions) and still above 1929 top of 29.55.

  • Weekly Stochastics at 62  - neutral. Daily at 27 - oversold
  • NYSE McClellan Oscillator is at -68. Oversold.
  • Volatility measures VIX/VXX remains at suppressed levels. Commercial VIX long interest has dropped substantially and is now only at 22K contracts net long. 
  • Last week's CTO Reports suggest that commercials (smart money) have maintained their positioning.  For now, the Dow is 5X, the S&P is at 4X net short, Russell 2000 is now at 4X net short and the Nasdaq is net neutral.

In summary: For the time being and long-term, the market remains in a clear bull trend. Yet, a number of longer-term indicators suggest the market might experience a substantial correction ahead.  Plus, the "smart money" is positioning for some sort of a sell-off.
