    Hi Bruce

    Here is the Fear and Greed Index comments.

    With the Canadian Federal Election next Monday I think most are waiting for the results which could have big ramifications overall. My guess is it will be just another minority government again with a few surprises.

  3. Ron/BC Says:

    Here is a 6 month chart of the $SPX. Nice uptrendline but intraday seems to be breaking down. The RSI 21 is still riding along its 50 line. A break below these lines would likely see a more pronounced selloff as I suspect a lot of traders have their finger on the sell button and are just looking to get out at or near a presumed top. Seasonal trends also suggest a selloff in the Sept-Oct time frame. I’d like to see a major selloff to get long at a much lower price level. And meanwhile I never feel I’m missing anything regardless.
