Sentiment overview

The Rydex has rallied since I warned that the low level ( around .53) triggers upside moves. The other indicators have risen as well but none is at an alert level yet including the ISEE which you will not find here. The MA’s of the ISEE are at mediocre levels but we have to be careful as this market is highly manipulated from many ends and support of the government. The time window for the top to build is another 1-4 weeks and speaking in SPX terms we shall see the 1030 area and a weekly close above 1000 before we can think of top.
