COMMENTARY
A strong showing last Tuesday put stock indexes above their 50 day moving averages, but they failed to hold that level by Friday’s close.  So this week starts with the downtrend intact.

All the indexes begin this week under their 20 day moving averages.  Aside from the DJIA, they’re all under their 50 day moving average as well.  The Russell 2000 remains in bear market territory, starting the week below its 200 day moving average.

2017-08-27 – US Stock Market Averages

No change in the price/volume action last week, so we start this week with the downtrend signal.

OEW still shows a probable downtrend, but continues to wait for confirmation.  As mentioned last week, declines during this bull market have been short-lived after an OEW confirmation.

Last week didn’t see any changes in the price action of growth names that made my selection screen (base failures, low-volume breakouts that subsequently failed), so I continue to watch and wait.  None of this is really surprising; August and September have been the worst two months of the year for stocks, over the last 29 years, based on the average monthly price change
