More problems for the bulls.

On top of a H&S formation (only the right is highlighted) and a failed 5 wave up, we now have a clear channel leading down.

Yesterday, I suggested failure might be at 73 but the party began a bit earlier at 67 precisely because of the channel. But it did get close to my target of 43.

And it sliced through to 50 DMA like a hot knife through butter. Why? There are no bulls and there is a tide of money leaving the market. From our friends at Lipper:

To really have fun, we must get below that pesky trend line at 43ish, then get below the shoulders at around 36 to 38 and, lastly, and drill a hole in the 200DMA sitting at 2012.

And one other interesting tidbit, a friend observed the weekly 50 WMA is below the 100WMA, a rare event last seen in 2000 and 2008.

In my view, the only way for the bulls to regain control is to rise above the descending wedge which appears unlikely.
