Two breadth indicators are at levels which suggest a bounce is near.
The middle pane, red line, is the number of stocks trading above their 5 day moving averages. At this level, this indicator is suggesting that a two to three day bounce may develop.
The lower pane, green line, is a measure of the number of stocks that declined. It is nearing extreme territory. When it gets to these levels, it usually means a bounce, or at least some stability, is imminent. However, this signal can be taken off the board by only one day’s worth of stability.
Based on these two indicators, what I am seeing is that a bounce is near, and it may last for as many as three days.

Wood, do you or is is possible with the setup you have, to put probabilities around the indicator triggers?
Yes. I have done it many times. I would run another tonight but we are starting vacation. If you want to look, just look under the “Market Breadth” category. You’ll find some results there.
