For the week ending 1/9/09 our Equity Risk Index made a 6 month high of 38.89%. Last week crushed it and brought it all the way back to the readings we saw in November of 22.22%. When the market fell apart breadth fell apart and T-Bond relative strength picked up as money left stocks and went into bonds.
So what will get the risk index climbing again? Consistent breadth, a real uptrend, and a decline in Treasuries would be a start. But what should be no surprise to our regular readers, we are not expecting that anytime soon.
