Monday, December 19, 2016


Friday was the last Option expiry and Triple Witching (futures,stocks) of 2016, and other things were happening to the market, including the upcoming Holidays. The week was basically a non-event as the DJIA moved up a tad, others down. Volume was a record high and the new Delta MSI indicator (Bullish when high) hit 70. The McClellan Oscillator was flat, as was the VIX and today's market. The I.I. Bull/Bear ratio stayed above 3.0, which shows complacency.
Here are the numbers:
