But as we have seen in the past, we should never underestimate the underlying power of this advance, so let's continue to look for any near term surprises toward that of the bullish persuasion.
Another good week for the bulls as the major market averages were up another 1 1/2% on average, with the Dow, OEX and SPX extending their current weekly winning streaks to six. Looking at the chart array this week and we see that we didn't see new pattern highs in any of the money flow lines with the exception of the NYSE Common Only advance/decline line which settled at new all time highs. It will be important for the buyers to keep the pressure on early next week to at least produce new high points in these same A/D lines or we're likely to see a pullback in all of the major market indices in order to attempt to reset the current sequence of leadership. The Precious Metals and XAU advance/decline lines had another ho hum week though we're again starting to see weakness in the Aussie advance/decline line as it perceptively broke below its current uptrend line shown on the chart. With Canada's Venture Composite internals also showing recent weakness in their structures (see cumulative charts), this might be indicating that we're on the doorstep of a breakdown in the precious metals markets in what could be its final capitulation to our long standing downside target of $1156 in the price of spot gold. Stay tuned. Other than that, there's not much more to report that hasn't already been reviewed over the last couple of weeks, with the buyers remaining in control of the action on an intermediate term basis. The rest of November, therefore, should continue to show a bullish bias in equity trading patterns overall. However, any new highs that we may see in the A/D lines, and especially in the McClellan Summation Index' near term, should then provide enough of a boost to extend this current advancing price sequence into the end of the 2013. Have a great week of trading!
