What is this symmetrical triangle in the $INDU-$FTSE ratio warning us of?

Maybe it relates to this chart, courtesy of ClusterStock's chart of the day:

It might be that something will happen to either the U.K. or U.S. stock markets before the triangle completes in early July. As an example, look at this chart:

Market rolls over a little bit late, but rolls nonetheless...

This roll was late, at .26517, fully 6% late.... On the X-axis, .25000 is the theoretical turn point...

I gave the market until Friday to roll over, it did peak on Friday...

It is possible that options expiration had something to do wih the delay...

A possible re-evaluation here...

As of two days ago the $RUT and the $NDX were approaching their 1/8 and 1/4 nodes, respectively, on generally lower volume and smaller price ranges. This normally suggests a top. Today we are wandering away from those nodes in time, with no confirmation of a top.

smaller scale rally that started with the… Continue

Put/Call Ratio May Indicate a Bottom

The Put/Call Ratio may be indicating that a short or intermediate term bottom is in place. We have seen two spikes to extreme levels beyond 1.2, the first of which resulted in an intraday reversal to a positive close and it appears that the same may happen today. Also, the 14 day moving average has breached the .95 area for the first time since the bull market began in March of 2009.

Relative strength in big cap financials is also worthy of note.…

Another bounce coming, maybe a bit more substantial?...

There could be another bounce here, as the support trendlines have been 'just barely' exceeded, with hourly Stochastics turning up...I have watched these trendlines inumerable times tolerate a slight penetration and then force price action back..…
