Running Out Of Steam?

Both Breadth and Sentiment are catching the apathy of summertime, as indices fail to pierce the 000s ahead - the DJIA and the SPX. Advance/declines waver from week to week, positive to negative; the McClellan Oscillator is negative for the third week in a row, as the Summation recedes into a 5 handle.
