The popular SPDR Mid-Cap ETF (MDY) looks similar to many other major market index ETF from a technical view. The weekly chart sets the overall trend and is the most important view from my perspective. There you’ll note the excellent, for this move, top revealing a position close indication which would have occurred on the open of the price bar September 9th near the all time high of  $288.00. From there the trend changed for a steady but erratic move lower.

Meanwhile the daily chart offered the same view with a sharp price break also in early September 2016. While not showing any specific HI/LO indicator virtually everything you needed to know about current conditions then and after the price break, revealed much of what you needed to know regarding future action. 

Our proprietary HI/LO indicators represent existing trends that may weaken or even reverse. Possible actions include closing an open position or even reverse especially if market is at extreme levels as measured by Relative Strength Indicator or similar.

Daily charts indicate short-term views and actions while Weekly charts indicate intermediate views. Long-term views are indicated by Monthly charts

There is no guarantee these indications will pan-out but we do believe, based on experience, outcomes are likely to happen.
