 Weekly Commentary  

Right arm still immobile so newsletter still somewhat cursory.

The NASDAQ bounced strongly off the bottom and closed just above the 50 day moving average on Friday.  Nevertheless, our trend indicator for the three major indices still points down. The reason is shown clearly in our equivolume chart (2nd chart below) where the volume levels are clearly well below average. Any recovery on low volume is suspect.
