With my annual San Diego trip postponed due to family illness - I still took the week off, but still present the data below for the past two weeks.

Nothing to write home about: 1st negative week in a month, with slightly less Volume.
NASD to NYSE Volume quite low - conservative investing, not speculative- a good sign.
Some weakness in Breadth and stocks on a Buy signal (Hallowe'en Madness), bit still more highs than lows, although number of stocks out there (Wilshire Index) has been decreasing for most of the new Century. McLellan Oscillator near - minus 50 - my usual BUY signal for Monday.
Finally, mutual fund flows were positive (Inflows) for the first time in two months -reported a week late.
