Topping Candlestick Semiconductor Index

It was a low key Friday for markets. Markets finished near Friday's highs, but the Semiconductor Index finished with a potential bearish 'black' candlestick (a lower close to open, but a higher close to the previous day). CCI for this index is ready to cut below the 200 marker.

Other indices capped a recent run of gains with a bearish 'hammer': Russell 2000 and S&P

The S&P registered a distribution day.

The relationship between Consumer Staples and Discretionary remains on the bear side with technicals all negative. A loss of the swing low would confirm, but there is a considerable discrepancy in the relationship between the S&P and the Consumer ETF ratio.

Friday was a pause in consecutive days of buying, but the respectable finish keeps bulls in the driving seat. Look for further gains in the near term and a break of winter 2015 highs.

You've now read my opinion, next read Douglas' and Jani's.
