Notes on chart - we hit a level today that sets the stage for the "BREXIT" vote.....a push could occur over that line taking on new levels...I will add a daily chart to show the same thing and link it here
The S&P500-0.05% , as viewed from the world by adjusting the S&P500-0.05% by the US Dollar-0.08% , had its 4th BEAR MARKET since the peak in 1999. I said "HAD" because the current rally has broken the 50% speed line of the decline, which is a simple way to measure the end of any trend.

The S&P topped in June 2014, not May 2015, when variance in the international value of the dollar is considered. It should continue lower until the end of this year. It is interesting how this correlation has remained in straight channels up and down since at least the early 1990s.

The dollar was strong in 2000-2001 and again now, but not so much in 2007-2008. But dividing the S&P by the dollar index produces a perfectly straight line through all 3 tops.
