Gold up, TLT up, UUP down and IMW down.
This is not a good sign for the SPY, QQQ, or DIA which all managed to consolidate rather than trend lower.
The Modern Family is also pointing to weakness as the only member that didn’t trend lower today was SMH.
SMH is consolidating at key resistance and its 50-DMA, so it’s going to move soon.
A surprise would be to the upside, and with that perhaps the family could change its bearish tone.
However, the breakdown in IYT makes this look unlikely.
IYT looks like it wants to lead lower.
If IYT and SMH can agree on the same direction, that’s likely to be the next dominant short-term move.
Bulls should be cautious.
