The DJTA Index...broke below its November low this morning. This may turn out to be a significant early warning sign for the US - and perhaps other world wide stock markets. This event will likely make the daily news soon.
After some of the large cap components like UPS and FDX recently broke new lows, the Dow Transport Index broke below it's November low this morning. This appears to eliminate any possibility of an EWP wave two correction as part of a larger rally that many have hoped would occur at this time.
I also see similar wave and volume patterns in the other US and Canadian Indexes, suggesting that they will "most likely" follow on the heels of the DJTA Index. The volume patterns for the TSX Comp and Nasdaq are not as well defined as the others but it's there as well.
The DJTA Index may turn out to be this months canary in the coal mine. If the DJIA Index also breaks below it's November low then this we create the classic and time proven Dow confirmation of a continuation of the current trend. The current trend is a bear market downward trend. In other words, a technical analysis confirmation that the bear has not ended.
From a practical market monitoring point of view this event also suggests that the trendlines can now be adjusted as shown. I have shown them for UPS and the Dow Transport Index. The most exposed point of the recent sideways move now becomes the last anchor point for the most current trendline shown here. This new boundary becomes our trendline going forward.
